As per one of our group’s aims – we want to help shape the way that other services support people affected by suicide. Over the 2 years since the group has been running we have been very fortunate to have met up with and made many good links with lots of excellent services who all seem to share our common goals of; reducing stigma, empowering individuals, and encouraging people to talk about their feelings. While out visiting other services it has been so encouraging to see the good work that is being done and the opportunities for others to access these services. It can only be a good thing to give people more choice and opportunities that can help them while they feel in such a desperate place with no hope.
Today we welcomed Mark from Edinburgh Contact Point as our guest. Edinburgh Contact Point is a mental health service that offers many things including group work and one to one support. Some of the different group activities include; an art group, a games group, a walking group, singing/music group, gym and swim group and a well-being group. We would like to thank Mark for giving up his time to be at the group today. To find out more about the Edinburgh Contact Point please click the link below;
