Promoting and supporting positive mental health and wellbeing for carers.
Health in Mind works to promote positive mental health. It offers a wide range of support services and courses to help people take positive steps in their lives for improved wellbeing.
Its services include providing a number of peer spaces to support the mental health and wellbeing of carers. These safe ‘listening’ spaces allow carers to explore ways of keeping well, and connect with other carers for peer support. Peer spaces are held monthly in Newington, Morningside, Leith and Drumbrae in libraries and/or community spaces.
The charity also runs online and in-person mental health sessions in partnership with VOCAL at its Carers’ Hub, and longer courses online and in venues across the city.
The central office in Edinburgh is on Shandwick Place, and there are also offices in Eskbank, Bathgate and Galashiels.
