In between meetings, Management Group members are in regular contact with the campaign by phone and email.
The campaign has 8 staff members who are based in the campaign’s offices in Leith. Campaign staff run the campaign day-to-day and meet regularly with local champions and campaign contacts across the whole of Scotland. Campaign staff also speak at conferences and meetings throughout the world, distribute materials, recruit and train media volunteers, encourage and support local campaign activities, run the websites, deal with press and public enquiries and develop new campaigning ideas.
The campaign is fully funded by the Scottish Government as part of its commitment to improving mental health and well-being. The campaign’s budgets and organisational plans are agreed by the Scottish Government and a representative of the Government also attends ‘see me’ Management Group meetings as an observer.
