Tay Road Bridge walks for new Dundee mental health group to be held twice a week

The group of walkers heading off to raise awareness
A walk across the Tay Road Bridge in support of people suffering from mental issues was so successful it’s going to be held twice a week.

One of the organisers, Ash Mullen, said eight people took part in last night’s walk and many more were promising to take part in future walks.

Ash and her friend Paula O’Neill organised the walk as part of their Let’s Talk Tayside campaign.

The two student nurses have formed the group in a bid to get people talking about their mental health concerns.

Ash said: “We thought the walk would be a good idea to highlight the number of people who go to the bridge when they are feeling suicidal.

“Paula and myself are overwhelmed with the support we have received so far.

“We now plan to hold the walk twice weekly and would love as many people as possible to join us.

“We are very proud of what the people of Dundee are doing to help themselves and others. More than 2,000 people have now joined our group in just a week.

“We want Dundee to become known for how supportive we are of our own communities.”

The next walk will be held next Tuesday.
