Health in Mind - The Listening Space

by Health In Mind Claimed

Our Listening Space service, a space for positive mental health and wellbeing in Edinburgh, has moved online on Wednesday afternoons using the platform Zoom. For those who have limited or no access to the internet, we can also arrange for you to dial-in from your phone.

We offer:
- A space for you to speak to a peer listening volunteer one to one (1.00 - 1:30pm)
-An online peer support group to share, listen, and support each other. Discussions and activities exploring how we can look after our mental health and wellbeing (1.30 - 3.00pm)

For more information and to sign up, please use the contact details below.

The Listening Space takes place every Wednesday, from 1pm – 2:30pm
in the ground floor hall of Gilmerton Community Centre . This is a drop-in space for positive mental health and wellbeing. The space has been designed alongside a group of local people, and inspired by the belief that everyone needs someone to listen to them, and that being around others who understand can be helpful.

At the drop-in, attendees 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.

This is a free drop-in for adults aged 18+.
For more information, or if someone would like to talk about the project before coming along, please contact Jenny Green at Health in Mind.
