Be more open about mental health in 2024

PEOPLE across Dumfries and Galloway are invited to say what they really mean when asked how they are, and have an open conversation about mental health.

See Me, Scotland’s programme to end mental health stigma and discrimination, is urging everyone start this with Time to Talk Day, on February 1.

They are urging everyone to start a conversation about mental health stigma – particularly in workplaces, schools, colleges, communities and with friends and family.

See Me director Wendy Halliday said: “Time to Talk Day provides an ideal chance to ask someone how they are, and encourage them to really say how they feel.

“By talking about mental health, we can challenge attitudes and outdated views – reducing stigma and creating supportive communities where talking about mental health can feel empowering.”

Resources and activity packs are available now from the See Me website at seemescotland.org.
