The Objectives are:

  • To introduce the suite of mental health services offered by NHS 24, ranging from digital support to urgent care.
  • To build knowledge and understanding of Breathing Space to produce the barriers to seeking help by increased awareness of the Breathing Space phone line and web chat service.

  • To build confidence and capacity to signpost effectively and appropriately to Breathing Space.
  • To highlight the national partnerships managed by Breathing Space and the national initiative, ‘Take some Breathing Space’ bench initiative.
