Faculty helps to ‘Pass the Badge’ for mental wellbeing

12 Oct

Let's start talking, says CEO Iain Reid


THE Faculty was delighted to help start the ball rolling on a World Mental Health Day initiative to promote wellbeing in the legal profession in Scotland.

Iain Reid, Faculty CEO, was invited by the Law Society of Scotland, with See Me Scotland, to join others in launching the “Pass the Badge” campaign.

Participants are asked to share their stories about mental health and challenging the stigma which often accompanies it.

They then Pass the Badge to someone else, to help open up discussion about mental health. The campaign will run throughout October.
