Breathing Space Day takes place every year on 1st February to raise awareness of the Breathing Space phone service and encourage everyone in Scotland to take some time out to look after their mental wellbeing.

This year is Scotland's Year of Listening (YoL), an initiative promoted by Breathing Space, Living Life, the Scottish Government and a number of national organisations.

The Year of Listening will be launched on Breathing Space Day (1st Feb) and will raise awareness throughout 2016 that listening, and being listened to, is good for your mental health. Visit the website for more information. 

Sometimes our thoughts and feelings can overwhelm us. It helps to get some Breathing Space. Pick up the phone - we're here to listen 0800 83 85 87
