Place2Be Scotland attends royal garden party in Edinburgh
This week, Place2Be staff members in Scotland were delighted to attend a royal garden party.
Their Royal Highnesses King Charles and Queen Camilla were joined by the Princess Royal to host the garden party at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, which is a traditional part of Holyrood Week.
In attendance from Place2Be Scotland were Becky Wilkinson-Quinn (Regional Clinical Lead), Gillian Wylie (Area Manager for Scotland Midwest), Sophia Sives (Area Manager for Scotland North), and Catherine Henderson (Place2Be Scotland’s Business Development Consultant).
On the day, guests were treated to a selection of sandwiches and cakes. Our staff members also had the opportunity to speak to Scotland's first minister, Humza Yousaf, and celebrate the hard work of Place2Be Scotland.
Since Autumn 2001, Place2Be has been providing in-school support and expert training to improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff across Scotland.
Starting with an initial pilot in two Edinburgh primary schools, Place2Be Scotland now reaches 29,926 and their families in 58 schools across Glasgow, Edinburgh, South Lanarkshire, Stirling, Renfrewshire, Angus, Perth & Kinross, North and South Ayrshire, and the Highlands.
We also work closely with education professionals across Scotland, providing support and advice through our partnership with Moray House School of Education and Sport, our Mental Health Champions-Foundation programme, and our online wellbeing sessions funded by the Scottish Government.
