The Oban Times - - Districts -

DUNOON Gram­mar School is look­ing to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether to speak about men­tal health.

Over the past year the school has be­come one the most ac­tive schools in Scot­land in im­prov­ing at­ti­tudes to men­tal health. It is one of six pi­lot schools for the brand new ‘What’s On Your Mind?’ pack from na­tional anti-stigma pro­gramme See Me.

The school has been work­ing with See Me over the past year to pi­lot and test the pack which sup­ports teach­ers and pupils to de­velop skills to tackle stigma and dis­crim­i­na­tion.

As part of its work, the school is hold­ing a Walk a Mile event around Dunoon to­mor­row (June 9).

MALLZEE, the Scot­tish-born and -based fash­ion shop­ping app, is to­day cel­e­brat­ing its mil­lionth down­load, ce­ment­ing its po­si­tion as the UKs lead­ing multi-re­tailer fash­ion app.

Founded in Ed­in­burgh in early 2013, Mallzee, com­monly dubbed the Tin­der for fash­ion, has pi­o­neered the m- com­merce con­sumer ex­pe­ri­ence – by bring­ing to­gether hun­dreds of high street re­tail­ers mak­ing it easy for shop­pers to find, com­pare, save and buy clothes, shoes and ac­ces­sories.

Mallzee founder and CEO Cally Rus­sell, from Glen­daruel, said: ‘One mil­lion peo­ple down­load­ing Mallzee – it’s a huge num­ber.

‘It’s 100 times the pop­u­la­tion of my home town of Dunoon, it’s two times the pop­u­la­tion of sunny Ed­in­burgh, it’s 20 per cent of the pop­u­la­tion of Scot­land and it’s one 60th of the pop­u­la­tion of the whole of the UK.’
