Nine in 10 people see driving as a way to improve their mental health.
In response to this research commissioned by SEAT, they have teamed up with suicide prevention charity, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) to pilot a new mental health 'SOS' feature which has been added to SEAT cars.
This pilot feature can be found in the vanity mirror of new vehicles and includes a QR code. If and when a driver needs some advice, they simply scan the QR code which takes a user to a page on CALM's website - which has been specifically-designed. The user can find a wealth of information, including hints and tips to preserve your mental health, and contact telephone numbers if the user may need support.
Richard Harrison. Managing Director of SEAT UK, said: “With our longstanding mental health partner, CALM, we wanted to play a small part in helping people to quickly access support when they need it."
