Danielle Rowley MP paid tribute to Scottish musician Scott Hutchison in Parliament yesterday (9th May 2019) marking a year’s anniversary of his death; and asked for a parliamentary debate on young people’s mental health.

Scott Hutchison, who was a member of the band Frightened Rabbit, died on 10th May 2018 by suicide. Ms. Rowley praised Mr. Hutchison’s family for setting up mental health charity Tiny Changes in his memory, and called for a debate on young people’s mental health which is a growing concern across the U.K.

Danielle Rowley MP said:

“I wanted to pay tribute to Scott, who was a fantastic Scottish musician, and highlight that his legacy will live on through the hard work of his family and their mental health charity Tiny Changes.

“The overwhelming response I have received has been heart-warming, and just shows how many lives Scott touched with his music.

“Mental health is often raised with me when I visit local schools and groups. It’s a growing issue that deserves more attention. I will continue to push for a debate on this important issue.”
