Support in Mind Scotland launches external corporate training

RSABI is launching an ambitious campaign to attract 500 new businesses and individuals to join their Supporter Scheme.

This year the charity, which helps people in Scottish agriculture, is unable to hold its annual Great Glen Challenge fundraising event, which last year raised £53,000.

The National Rural Mental Health Forum have published a report on their pilot project 'Highlands and Islands Connections'.

A West Lothian farming family have chosen to speak openly about their experience of losing a member of their family to suicide, as part of a drive to raise awareness of mental health and the importance of talking.

Funding of more than £8 million is helping projects to deliver mental health support and wellbeing services for people who are feeling isolated during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The funding was allocated to 344 projects, who are providing support in communities across Scotland, including to those who are self-isolating or shielding.

Test and Protect – NHS Scotland’s approach to controlling the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the community – will be rolled out across all health boards from today (Thursday, May 28).

RSABI, the charity which supports people in Scottish agriculture, has been awarded £50,000 from the NFU Mutual Charitable Trust.

A recent survey of NFU Mutual customers found that nearly three quarters of people are feeling more isolated since the UK went into lockdown.
