The Listening Space at Gilmerton Community Centre

by Health In Mind Claimed ( Health & Social Care Services, Mental Health Issues, Activity )

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+.
