World Mental Health Day

Around 1 in 3 people in Scotland are estimated to be affected by mental illness in any one year with anxiety & depression being the most common.

World Mental Health Day is a chance for us to talk about Mental Health, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if we are struggling.
