We all have mental health

Testing Times

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health – and it’s equally as important to know how to look after it, and how to ask for help if we need it.

At this time of year, young people across Scotland are busy revising for and sitting exams.

Our new campaign, Testing Times, is highlighting the anxieties around exam time, and hopefully equipping more young people facing the stresses of exam time with the tools to manage those anxieties.

We’ve been joined by some familiar faces, including X-Factor star Nicholas McDonald and Minister for Mental Health, Clare Haughey – all talking about times they’ve experienced anxiety, and what they do to manage it.

We want to make sure that young people can learn about mental health and wellbeing so they can look after themselves, and ask for help when they need it. We also want everyone with a role in a young person’s life to feel confident that they can help.
