The 15th - 21st of May marks Mental Health Awareness Week 2023. This year's theme is anxiety.

COSLA's Children and Young People Spokesperson, Councillor Buchanan, has commented on the vital role of local government in supporting better mental health and wellbeing for all in our communities.

Councillor Buchanan said:

"Financial pressures, exams, employment, relationships and other life events can all cause anxiety.

Whilst this a normal feeling it can sometimes become a mental health issue, significantly impacting people’s lives.

Local Government remains committed to supporting our communities around the causes of poor mental health and wellbeing, and working with them to design and deliver the mental health and wellbeing support they need."

More information about the campaign and support resources can be found on the Mental Health Foundation Website.
