Raising Awareness About Anxiety and Mental Health

Petition Campaign Update

As you know, back in February I started the research into mental health services in Scotland with the view to submitting a petition to the Scottish Parliament highlighting the need for change.  Well on Tuesday 14th the petition was opened for public signature.

The Lost Smile

In Scotland we have an initiative called Child Smile which provides dental services to nurseries, schools and even have a child smile dentist in many dental surgeries.  They also look after your baby's first teeth when they come in.  Talking to your children about looking after their teeth is something we all need to do and we all know children don't always want to listen, I know my two have selective hearing!.  This is were Wrigley's come in with their new project - Smile Back.
