Help us, help you...


We are developing new ways of supporting positive mental health and wellbeing in South East Edinburgh. If you live in this area, and are interested in getting involved, or have ideas to contribute, please get in touch.  

The Listening Space in Gilmerton Community Centre

This drop-in service will take place every Wednesday afternoon from 1pm to 2:30pm in the downstairs hall of Gilmerton Community Centre. 

At the Health in Mind Listening Space we focus on positive mental health and wellbeing.  We believe that everyone needs someone to listen to them, and that being around others who understand can be helpful.  

At the listening space you can:

• Speak to a Health in Mind peer listening volunteer one-to-one. Volunteers will listen with a compassionate and non-judgemental ear to whatever you want to speak about.  We are impartial and respect your confidentiality.  We will not provide advice or counselling.

• Access materials to help you look after yourself and find out about other services and resources in Edinburgh.

• Join in with wellbeing-based activities as part of a group.

• Spend time in the space without feeling pressured to do any of the above.

You are responsible for your own needs in this space: please let us know how we can support you best.
