MP Urges Locals to Support Mental Health Campaign

14/09/2017

Dr Lisa Cameron MP, Westminster SNP Mental Health Spokesperson, urges young people to volunteer with the charity See Me to oust negative attitudes toward mental health.  Volunteers are being asked to join the programme and help young people to speak about mental health in order for young people to get the information, help and support they need.

Dr Lisa Cameron MP said,

“I would urge young people to come forward to help peers and to raise awareness.  It is vital to have an understanding of and empathy for mental health issues. Around 1 in 4 people are affected by mental health problems in their lives and if more people speak about their difficulties it reduces stigma and makes it easier for young people to ask for help.

The application deadline is the 22nd September 2017.

To request a volunteer application pack please email laura.sharpe@seemescotland.org or call 0141 530 1093.

If you would like to help but can’t volunteer you can:

–          Start a conversation with a friend, family member or work colleague about mental health stigma and discrimination.

–          Follow See Me on social media and join in our online debates. @seemescotland   facebook/seemescotland
