Library News and Events
Breathing Space Day 2015
Breathing Space is Scotland's national phone service for anyone feeling low, anxious or stressed.
Breathing Space Day is an annual awareness-raising day which takes place on 1st February and encourages Scots to take some time out to look after their mental wellbeing. The theme of this year's Breathing Space Day is 'Stay Connected', promoting the benefits of keeping in touch with friends, family and loved ones.
In the run up to Breathing Space Day we will be welcoming health worker David Alexander to the Central Library to talk about the service and the importance of opening up when you feel down. The events will be held on Monday 26 January and Friday 30 January at 12pm in the Central Library. The free talks are open to all and booking is not necessary.
For more information on the events contact LibraryEvents@aberdeencity.gov.uk
