Welcome to your Full Scottish, live from our Cowcaddens studio in Glasgow.
Full Scottish programme starts at 12:00 on Sunday 14th October 2018
On this week’s Full Scottish, Corri Wilson’s guests are Toni Guigliano, Policy and Public Affairs Manager for the Mental Health Foundation in Scotland and Anthony Salamone from the Scottish Centre on European Relations.
As Mental Health Week comes to an end, we reflect the Mental Health Foundation’s Report on the Growing Child Mental Health Crisis facing Scotland and look at the issues affecting mental health in the wider society.
One of the biggest factors causing mental ill-health is poverty. As Universal Credit is being rolled out in Glasgow and across Scotland, what impact will it have on the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable in society.
As a no-deal Brexit cliff edge is getting closer, what are the chances of a deal which will protect jobs and the Scottish economy. Are the interests of Scotland being considered or represented at the negotiating table or will Scotland be told you voted to stay in the UK in 2014 and the UK Government will decide what is best for you?
In American politics, Taylor Swift decided enough is enough and may well have said, Kanye no dae that? Just Kanye no? as she announced her support for the Democrats in the mid-term elections.
