What we believe

Listen Well Scotland believes being able to LISTEN WELL plays an important part in health and wellbeing and so is working towards its vision that Scotland becomes a listening people. 

Modern technology has revolutionised personal and business communications. What has not changed, however, is the need for individuals of all ages to feel, at a deep personal level, their voice, their story and their concerns, are listened to.

Encouraging people “to talk” about mental health is receiving high profile. While Listen Well Scotland fully supports this positive step to reduce stigma we also say the same high profile should be given to encourage people “to listen” and to learn to “listen well.”
