Alex Scott BBC Mental Health Ambassador

Alex Scott launched the BBC’s New mental health platform, Headroom, as an ambassador, encouraging the public to turn to this dedicated online resource in response to the mental health challenges presented by the pandemic. The service includes practical everyday tips, inspiring personal stories, activities and music mixes to boost your mood, escape and relax.

In support of the service, Alex Scott MBE, who is an advocate of talking openly about mental health, said “As someone who has been more vocal about their own mental health journey over the past couple of years, I am honoured to be the ambassador for BBC Headroom. This mental health ‘online hub’ is a project I am very passionate about and believe this is absolutely something we need right now.”
