1 in 20 is thinking about Suicide

Mental Health problems can affect the way you think, feel and behave and can feel just as bad or worse than any other illness- only you cannot see it. One of the major challenges today, is the rising suicide rate amongst young males, not only in Scotland but in the UK as a whole. In Scotland, 262,740 people may be thinking about it, and the gender gap is widening.

Despite the challenges faced, it is possible to recover from mental health problems and live a productive and fulfilling life. The team hope to raise as much money as possible so the charity can put the money to use right away and help those in need!

Fundraising efforts to continue with ECS VS AGSL Charity Bake Off

The fundraising efforts will continue for another week, with employees from both companies competing against each other in a Charity Bake Off. Keep an eye out for photos of all the extravagant bakes and results!
