Scottish Mental Health Week 2013

All this week RNIB’s Insight Radio and Breathing Space have teamed up for Scottish Mental Health Week (7th-13th October).

The week will see activities and events taking place across Scotland, with mental health organisations like Breathing Space, Living Life, See Me and SAMH raising awareness of mental health.

During Scottish Mental Health Week, World Mental Health Day is celebrated on the 10th October. As the day coincides with World Sight Day this year, Breathing Space and RNIB Scotland are raising awareness of the emotional support available to those living with sight loss through both services.

Insight Radio was Europe’s first station for blind and partially sighted people. Listeners can tune in to an interview with Tony McLaren, Breathing Space National Coordinator, this week on 101 FM.
