NHS 24 supports Mental Health scheme

Nearly two thirds of the population know someone close to them who has experience of mental ill-health but 40% of Scots admit they would find it hard, or are unsure, how to discuss or talk about mental illness.

That’s why NHS 24, Scotland’s national telehealth and telecare organisation, has signed an anti-stigma pledge.

NHS 24 will raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing and work with ‘see me’, Scotland’s national anti-stigma programme, in a bid to stamp out stigma associated with mental ill-health.
