The number of psychologists employed in the north-east has grown by around a third.
New statistics published by the NHS have shown that the number of full-time clinical staff in psychology has risen from 64 in December 2013 to 90.7 in June 2018.
A spokeswoman for NHS Grampian said: “The psychology workforce has been growing this year thanks to additional funding and successful recruitment.
“Although we still have vacant posts in some areas, we are pleased that primary care psychology is becoming more established.
“The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service has also been developing with new posts being added.”
As well as a rise in NHS Grampian, boards across Scotland have increased psychology staff from 951.8 to 1172.3 in the same time period.
Minister for Mental Health Claire Haughey said: “We have met with a number of health boards whose current performance against the waiting times targets needs to improve and we are continuing to support our mental health services through £150 million of extra funding.
“This includes £54m to help boards improve their performance against waiting times targets by investing in workforce development, recruitment and retention.”
