Health in Mind promotes positive mental health and wellbeing in Scotland.
Whether you use our services, volunteer, work with us or participate in our training, we want you to benefit from the knowledge and experience which we bring to our work.
Many of our services have been developed in direct response to demand from people who felt that their needs weren’t being met – that often meant undertaking research to understand the concerns; telling people about the issues and developing practical solutions. Our work with BME groups, childhood sexual abuse and information provision all came about in this way.
We also provide support, respite and befriending services, as well as day services and counselling/talking therapies – face to face and on the telephone. So when you buy into our services, you’re also getting access to a wealth of understanding and skill around mental health and wellbeing.
Our team of professional support staff and committed volunteers work in partnership to deliver a unique and wide ranging mix of individual and group support services in Edinburgh, Midlothian / East Lothian and the Borders.
General and self-help information relating to Mental Health and Wellbeing is available through our Information Resource Centre. The Centre also runs free information afternoons.
Health in Mind runs a busy and varied internal training program and most courses are open to external delegates with an interest in Mental Health and Wellbeing issues. Costs vary, but we can help you to identify whether payment can be made through an individual learning account (ILA). Training can also be delivered to groups in the workplace and tailored to suit the specific needs of the organisation.
