Paycare Wellbeing has joined forces with partners in Scotland to organise a Motherwell mental health awareness e-clinic.
The free virtual event, which is aimed at individuals and businesses who want to learn more about wellbeing, will run from 10am until 11am on Wednesday 8 September.

It’s being run in conjunction with Motherwell FC and will feature guests Robert Nesbitt from the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and Aaron Connolly from Time to Tackle.
SAMH has been running for almost 100 years, launching in 1923, and is Scotland’s national mental health charity which works with adults and young people to provide support within social care, primary care, schools and other settings.
Time to Tackle was set up by Aaron and Siobhán Connolly after Aaron struggled to find support for his mental health.
They run an award-winning Football Therapy programme and aim to challenge stigma, promote open and honest conversations, and create peer support networks to combat loneliness.
“We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Motherwell FC even further by jointly hosting a free webinar focused around mental health,” Paycare’s wellbeing manager Kerry B Mitchell explained.
“I’ll be sharing some information about various conditions and risk factors, tips on approaching difficult conversations, signposting pathways, and some of the statistics and myths around mental health.
“I’m sure with the Scottish Association for Mental Health and Time to Tackle both joining us on the e-clinic that it’ll be a really interesting and informative hour for those attending.
“It’s so important for us all to be having these conversations, especially with more of us than ever likely to develop mental ill health during our lifetimes – and I’d like to thank Motherwell FC for their commitment to highlighting this issue.”
