Working in partnership

We work with a wide range of partners to promote mental wellbeing in the community including:

  • charities
  • health boards
  • support groups
  • government programmes
  • public service organisations

A Breathing Space partnership network has also been developed, which meets twice a year and aims to raise the profile of mental health and wellbeing. This forum encourages discussion and sharing of ideas between different organisations in Scotland.

To see our partnership work in action visit our News section.
