Heads Up - for good mental health

Heads Up, a new website for good mental health across Glasgow and Clyde, is now live.

The website – www.headsup.scot – has been developed by colleagues in mental health with the support of our web team and includes information about the types of services that are available across NHSGGC. It also provides information about common mental health conditions, what the experience may feel like and about ways to cope.

Ronnie Sharp, patient services manager, said: “Heads Up is for you, your family, your friends, your work colleagues, and the people we work with to get healthier.

“We hope that Heads Up will be part of all our shared learning and understanding about good mental health in Glasgow and Clyde.”
