Marion Matheson South Uist Youth Development Group recently co-ordinated a girls night in St. Peter’s hall Daliburgh, as the female members identified that they would like to participate in a specific night of activities on issues relating to teenage girls.

Kenna MacInnes and Isabel Steele from NHS Western Isles (Health Promotion Department) delivered inputs on body image and relaxation and stress management.

Comments made on the night were “With exams starting next week, I really enjoyed the session on how to cope with stress.”

“I now feel more confident about myself and have learned that magazines don’t know me.”

“It was a great night. When can we do it again?”
