SBHA Donation

Staff at Scottish Borders Housing Association held a Mental Health Awareness Day recently, to highlight issues around mental well-being and support that is available.

The Association’s Healthy Living Group, which promotes healthier lifestyles within SBHA, organised the day, during which staff were offered 1-1 sessions and listened to a presentation by SBHA’s Mental Health Advocate, Susan Falconer.

There was also a bake sale, which raised £230 for Tiny Changes –  the Healthy Living Group was delighted to welcome Ron Hutchison as a special guest on the day.

Susan Falconer commented: ‘Mental health issues should be given the same focus as physical health; their impact can be just as great. We chose to support Tiny Changes because we believe that if young people are given help and support, it will help them to cope with challenges when they are older. We hope to run a follow-up event in the New Year.’”

This is just the beginning of the journey, and with your help we can make lots of tiny changes that lead to a huge difference in how young people are supported and listened to. We are still learning things and have a long way to go. If we can make one young person feel safe, heard and well then it will all have been worth it.
