Events focus on mental wellbeing
An innovative bid has been launched to raise awareness of the issues faced by hundreds of people across Dumfries and Galloway suffering from mental illness.

Bell College hosted interactive information and drop in sessions in Dumfries town centre and the North West Resource Centre.

Experts were on hand on Monday to answer questions on anything from Alzheimers to suicide.

The events are part of a programme marking World Mental Health Day.
