We work together to positively impact people’s mental health and wellbeing. We create awareness and understanding of mental health and wellbeing within communities.

We currently provide services across Edinburgh, the Lothians, and the Scottish Borders and we also have a number of national services. We provide a continuum of support through a range of models such as peer support, supported self management and trauma support.

It’s an exciting time for us as we celebrate our 40th birthday and develop our strategy from 2023 onwards.
