Breathing Space on Digital TV
Information at the touch of a button
January saw the launch of Breathing Space and Living Life on NHS Scotland's digital TV service. The channel was launched by NHS 24 last summer to allow access to web-based health information services through the TV.
Tony McLaren, Breathing Space/ Living Life National Coordinator explained "Many people do not have the internet at home so to be able to use digital TV to access information about mental health services now is great news. Hopefully it will encourage more people to open up when they are feeling down; whether that's speaking to friends, family or phoning Breathing Space or Living Life."
The channel can be accessed using Sky, Freesat for Sky (both channel 539) and Virgin (channel 233 or interactive channel).
