Aberdeen Science Centre: The Science of Mental Health

Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

November 2022

As well as being one of Aberdeen’s top visitor attractions, Aberdeen Science Centre is passionate about educating members of the public of all ages.

The Science of Mental Health aims to break down pre-conceived notions about mental illness and provides a detailed understanding of the complexities of the human brain through a series of workshops delivered within Aberdeen’s communities. The sessions also explore evidence on how sleep, eating well, exercise and making time with friends and family can positively impact your mindset.

After a difficult couple of years, mental health and self-care should be one of our top priorities. The Science of Mental Health provides tools and guidance to reassure members of the community that help is available, brings the conversation in to communities in the city and, by basing workshops on scientific fact and research, the stigma behind the issue can be broken down.
