The two will join forces for a year-long initiative, aiming to increase awareness of mental health and emotional issues throughout the Highlands.

They will also tell people of the support available from Mikeysline, with the reminder that “it’s okay not to be okay”.

To kickstart the initiative, members of Norscot’s team are taking part in the Million Steps for Mikeysline effort.

Callum Grant, managing director at Norscot, said: “We are delighted to be working with Mikeysline as our charity partner for this year.

“Mikeysline provides much-needed support to people suffering from mental health issues across the region and we have a few initiatives planned to take place over the next 12 months.”

Emily Stokes, Mikeysline’s chief executive, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working in partnership with Norscot.

“Their support will help us to continue to support adults and young people who are in emotional distress or struggling with their mental health and help us to raise awareness of our services across Highland and Moray.

“This good news has come at a crucial time when many people are struggling and our services are needed more than ever, so we are very grateful to Norscot.”

Mikeysline offers text-based support through SMS, webchat and social media, drop-in and one-to-one appointments at their Hives, and additional support for young people through their young person’s service.

It recently opened a new centre in the Highland Yoga Collective in Nairn, bringing the toal number of outreach centres it operates across the Highlands to four.

It is open on Saturdays from 6-10pm.
