ROSS County stars have united to share "a really important message" for a mental health and wellbeing charity ahead of a major awareness day.

Ross County FC's video message for Highland charity Mikeysline was recoreded to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day on Thursday, September 10.

It states: "Everyone goes through challenging times in their lives and some of us will go on to have mental health issues and we will need to have some support and help along the way.

"The key is not to let everything build up or get too much for us so that we cannot cope. It’s okay not to be okay.

"Contact Mikeysline via their text service or drop in to the Hive Centre on Academy Street, Inverness. This can be the first step in helping you get confidential and non judgemental support today. Reach out, don’t suffer in silence. For Mikeysline Text support service text 07779303303. It’s okay not to be okay.”
