MP Hosts Mental Wellbeing Information Session in Penicuik

Danielle Rowley MP co-hosted a mental health wellbeing session and joint surgery with Claudia Beamish MSP on Friday (2nd August) at the Ladywood Leisure Centre in Penicuik.

Open to all Midlothian residents, the event brought together a number of local and national organisations including Tiny Changes, VOCAL, Penicuik Citizens Advice Bureau, Seen on Screen, Health in Mind, Midspace, CAPS and the National Farmers Union (pictured).

Both Ms. Rowley and South of Scotland MSP Claudia Beamish were on hand to provide a joint advice surgery for constituents.

Danielle Rowley MP said:

“Mental health is a topic often raised with me when I visit local schools and groups here in Midlothian and is often an issue for people I support through my office. 

“This event brought organisations together under one roof and gave an opportunity for people in Midlothian to understand what help, advice and support is available to them.

“The event was a brilliant success, I hope to have a similar event in the near future. In the meantime, I will continue to push for a parliamentary debate on young people’s mental health.”
