Welcome to the A Life Worth Living Group at Simpson House.  We are running a group for people 18+ who struggle with depression or low mood and don’t want to just survive, but have a life that’s worth living.  The group is for people who want to learn how to have better emotional well-being skills and is not specific to any criteria.  The group evolved from the Choose Life group which began at Simpson House in 2012.

The focus of the group:

  • To reach out to people who feel alone
  • To play a part in reducing stigmas in society
  • To help people build up their strengths and interests.
  • To help people have more self-compassion
  • To offer hope

The group facilitators are:

Paul Nicholson (Senior Addiction Worker, Simpson House)

Liz Forrester (Senior Addiction Worker, Simpson House)

  1. Hi there Carole-Anne, thanks for getting in touch. Can you tell us where you live? Are you local to Edinburgh?

  2. HI there! I live in Edinburgh (Gorgie) and would like to attend your group sessions. I am diagnosed with depression and although I am in regular contact with my psychiatrist/ psychotherapist, I would like to get some extra support. Would I be welcome? Do I need to sign up, or just pop in?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Nedalina, Thanks for enquiring about the group and for reading our blog! You are more than welcome to come along to the group. We run every Thursday at Simpson House 52 Queen St, EH2 3NS. (It’s not too far from Gorgie.) You just have to turn up on the day to register at 10.15am. As you’ve probably seen from the blog it’s a really safe, supportive group that I hope could help you with your situation. Hopefully see you on Thursday or whenever you feel you would like to come along. Best Wishes, Paul
