Support for Carers

We know that caring for others, whether that's your friends, families, or neighbours, can be isolating and difficult. It is often hard for carers to find the time to take care of themselves and connect with others too. 

That's why we are delivering support for carers as a partner in the Carewell Health and Wellbeing Partnership. This partnership is a new joint initiative between ourselves, VOCAL Edinburgh, Eric Liddell Centre and Milan Senior Welfare. 

We are offering a range of courses and peer spaces to support the mental health and wellbeing of carers. These safe spaces will allow carers the time to explore and discover ways of keeping well and to be able to connect to a wider community of carers and experience peer support.

Do you have experience of caring for someone and would you like to support others? We are also looking for volunteers and people to be involved in the development of our carer services.

Listening Space for Carers

Do you care for a family member, friend or neighbour, and live in Edinburgh? We offer the Listening Space for Carers, a place to meet other carers, talk about how you're feeling, and to share, listen and receive support.

Dates and times

This takes place online on Zoom every Monday from 6.00 - 7.00pm.

Wsparcie dla polskich opiekunów!

Jesteś opiekunem jeśli opiekujesz się członkiem rodziny, znajomym lub sąsiadem, który cierpi z powodu choroby przewlekłej albo trudności psychicznych.

Health in Mind oferuje wsparcie dla polskich opiekunów – jesteśmy w trakcie konsultacji w kwestii grup i warsztatów, które stworzymy w języku polskim.

W czerwcu ruszają pierwsze warsztaty z zakresu radzenia sobie ze stresem i dobrostanu psychicznego.
