We aim to promote positive mental health and well-being across Scotland, offering an extensive range of services, including counselling and cognitive behavioural therapies, befriending and community connecting, and trauma support.
Health in Mind is an Edinburgh-based charity whose mission is to promote positive mental health and well-being both within Edinburgh itself and throughout the rest of Scotland. Whilst one quarter of Scots are estimated to experience mental health difficulties, problems of stigma, misdiagnosis and inadequate resources mean that only 27% of those currently experiencing problems receive ongoing support. Investment in dedicated strategies is thus vital to help provide both education and assistance in order to combat the problem.
We offer a wide range of services, including free information; counselling; trauma support; and befriending, helping over 3000 people each year.
Integral to our aims is a belief that everyone should have access to a full and satisfying life, and as such much of our work is focused on those in particularly vulnerable circumstances, such as those in Black and Minority Ethnic communities, and those facing homelessness.
