It's the Year of Listening

Scotland's 'Year of Listening' (YoL) will  raise awareness throughout 2016 that listening, and being listened to, is good for your mental health

We like to think we are good listeners but are we really listening? Could you be a better listener?

Relationships and friendships, where we feel listened to, can have a huge positive impact on our sense of wellbeing. The YoL is an opportunity for us all to demonstrate our commitment to be better listeners. Whether you are a friend, parent, sibling, spouse, neighbour or carer...take time to listen today.

How you can support the YoL campaign:
