Stunning mural at Glasgow Central Station

A mural raising awareness of mental health support services in Scotland has been unveiled at Glasgow Central station

Measuring over 10 metres in length and designed by contemporary street artist Sam Bates, aka ‘Smug’, the mural was commissioned by Network Rail in partnership with Samaritans and Breathing Space to signpost to support for those struggling with the pressures of Christmas and the pandemic.

Drew Burns, Network Rail station manager, said: “Having the opportunity to build upon our strong partnership with the Samaritans and Breathing Space and to work with such a talented artist as Smug is a real honour for Scotland’s Railway.

“The mural is stunning, and we hope it will encourage anyone who needs support to contact Samaritans or Breathing Space and make that important call.

“This has been challenging year for so many of us and we fully understand that the build up to the festive period can be difficult. We hope people do reach out to the support available.”

Tony McLaren, Breathing Space national coordinator added: “The mural is a striking reminder that you are not alone, and that reaching out to friends, family or a national helpline can make all the difference.”
