Mental Health Support


We offer community-based and recovery-focused mental health and well-being support services for people with a range of mental health issues.


Our support was developed in line with the Scottish Government’s Mental Health Strategy and is focused on early intervention and prevention. We promote physical and emotional well-being and enhance access to treatment and services where required.

We believe in supporting people to live independently and healthily based on their choices and wishes.

Support needs are not constant, and peoples’ outcomes change, so we react, adapt and adjust as people’s lives change.

Whilst each person’s support is unique, there are common themes around which people seek support to improve their health, wellbeing and participation in life, including:

  • Maximising independence in the home, including tenancy agreements, finances and personal care
  • Building and maintaining relationships with family, friends and other networks
  • Managing medication and treatment programmes
  • Shopping and cooking healthy meals on a budget
  • Enjoying education, employment or volunteering
  • Attending social activities, connecting with local resources and trying new things
  • Building resilience and developing self-help skills
We promote and focus on recovery, rehabilitation and personal growth: maximising independence, developing and building skills, and creating a robust circle of support.  

We aim to support each person to develop new skills, enabling them to manage their own lives and home environment, increasing their self-esteem, skill base and well-being. Many people want to avoid being admitted to hospital, and so we work together to develop agreed approaches to stay safe and well at home.

We achieve this by identifying goals with each person and adopting a “do with” method, rather than “do for”.  We are tenacious and do not give up on people.

Our specially trained practitioners develop strong support relationships, break down barriers and positively persist with people to ensure they are informed, engaged and active citizens in their homes and community.
