Rovers back mental health push
Threave Rovers teamed up with Support in Mind Scotland (Stewartry) on Saturday to highlight the importance of mental health.
Representatives of the charity attended the game at Meadow Park against Bonnyton Thistle to get the message across.
Information was provided about local services which include the Stewartry Resource Centre, an outreach project, a carers support service and a tailored programme of support for young adults ages 16-30.
Support worker Leanne Latta said: “We unveiled our new sponsor board displayed in the grounds which provides details of how to get in touch with us via email and telephone. Davie McVitie and the committee kindly allowed us to give out cakes made by the service users and collect donations.
“These go a long way to help our charity and raise our profile as a local service for mental health.
“As it was World Mental Health Day yesterday, we would like to thank Threave Rovers players, staff and public for giving us the time and the opportunity to talk about Support in Mind Scotland.
“We are delighted that we are helping to end the stigma surrounding talking about one’s mental health.”
