“You just don’t know what different internal battles people are dealing with on a day to day basis.”

“The main thing is we need to move away from is Mental Health being something that we are embarrassed to talk about and ashamed of suffering from because it really is no different to being physically unwell. It’s really important that I raise awareness of this through my Police Scotland workshops, but also my priority is working towards ensuring that everyone treats others around them with respect and compassion, as you just don’t know what different internal battles people are dealing with on a day to day basis.”
