They won the Mary Leishman award for services to arts and drama for their Roads to Success art exhibition.

The radio station’s annual awards celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable people and organisations who make Fife a better place.

The nomination recognises Contact Points involvement in the popular ‘Roads to Success’ art exhibition for the past 21 years. The yearly exhibition,  which is run jointly with the NHS as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival,  aims to challenge the negative stereotypes associated with mental ill health.

Artwork by people who access Fife Contact Point services is included in the exhibition. This year’s exhibition focused on the theme of connections and how being part of a supportive community can help mental health and well being.
