Conversation Cafe

Breathing Space joined partners, Abellio ScotRail, Railway Mission and Choose Life on the Ayrshire line for conversation cafes on trains

The team spoke with people of all ages, handing out Breathing Space and Samaritans pocketcards and steps for stress booklets.

Lisa-Jane Aitken, National Development Officer for Breathing Space said:

"It was great to be able to chat with passengers and spread the word about some of the mental wellbeing support services that are available. Even if people are feeling ok in themselves, knowing there is support there when they need it and being able to signpost family and friends who may be struggling, provided reassurance. It was a great day with everyone really receptive to the message that it's important to take some breathing space and look after your mental health."

The Conversation Cafe was held ahead of National Breathing Space Day and Time to Talk Day tomorrow (1st Feb).
