Men­tal health needs re­sources

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - AGENDA -

There was no short­age of high-pro­file fig­ures bar­ing their emo­tional souls yes­ter­day to sup­port World Men­tal Health Day.

In it­self, a re­fresh­ing sig­nal of our in­creas­ing will­ing­ness to talk about and en­gage with an is­sue that touches us all. Even more promis­ing that this open­ness is not con­fined to its al­lot­ted day.

Groups are spring­ing up in all cor­ners of­fer­ing peo­ple the chance to dis­cuss what for too long was a taboo sub­ject.

Politi­cians are talk­ing about it plenty too. Let us hope they trans­late those words soon into the ur­gent re­sources needed by the NHS.
