ROYAL Air Force personnel, veterans and their families are being offered free mental wellbeing awareness training in Glasgow.

The RAF Association, the charity which supports the welfare of the RAF family, has launched their Finding It Tough? initiative aimed at equipping people to help tackle life’s pressures.

It will also help people to offer support to others struggling with mental wellbeing issues, and to signpost them to organisations that may be able to help.

Air Marshal Sir Baz North, President of the RAF Association, said: “The continuing stigma around mental wellbeing issues is something which must be addressed in all walks of life. "The free courses that we are offering are a vital step towards this.

“These courses will help people to identify the characteristics and traits associated with poor mental wellbeing so that timely and supportive action can be taken.”

Training sessions will be delivered on various dates in Glasgow, with the first starting on Thursday 12 March at the Pentagon Centre, on Washington Street.
