They also deliver NHS services that can be easier to use than making an appointment to see someone in your surgery – whether you have symptoms you would like checked out or need support with long-term medication.

My name is James McGuire, I have been involved with Achieve More Scotland for the last 9 years. I was 16 years old when I first got involved playing for Possilpark in the Friday Night Football League. At the time I was also starting my 5th year at Secondary school and wasn’t 10% sure what I wanted to do as a career. This was when I first got introduced to the idea of volunteering, so I started to help organise

To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week we have decided to share some of our young people´s opinion on Body Positivity. Today we interview Esther. Why body image affects so many young woman/girls ? When young girls hit puberty they want to make boys like them, but the boys like all the celebrities that have undergone plastic surgery or their favourite influencer has a body they would like. Opinion on body image is so predominant nowadays for young people?   It’s prominent

During #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we also wanted to focus in the struggles that males go through when it comes to their bodies and appearance.

Nowadays society's standards are set so high for young people to be "Perfect" and not the same as everyone around them. In my opinion, our environment is now beginning to turn toxic and people are turning on the people who have the guts to be different.   In my opinion if you aren't the same as everyone else you are set aside and castaway and in some cases, bullied. This is because people in society especially young people, find it overwhelmingly hard

  Come morning or night what’s the first and last thing you do? I can bet 9/10 said check your phone. Whether it’s to switch the alarm off, check your calendar or have a quick snoop through Facebook.  We don’t think much of it, gradually over time we have used our phones for more and more tasks each day meaning this addictive behaviour has gone unnoticed. This being the case we have set an example that our younger generation must live with

This influence made it incredibly hard to appreciate your body when you think you look nothing like how your “supposed” to.  Over the years social media has only got bigger and more common for young people to use.
