Description

Living Well North Edinburgh - LWNE - is a community-based, user-led, mental health service based in Pilton and Clermiston. The essence of LWNE is people working together to improve the mental health and well-being of their local community and themselves by using holistic approaches which support and encourage people to realise their potential. Our service users are members of the organisation, and this is what they prefer to be called. The content and delivery of our work is led by and responsive to our members’ needs.

LWNE was formed in the Autumn of 2011 by a merger between the Pilton-based PROP Stress Centre and the Clermiston-based Threshold.

Mental Health Project

If you want some support, friendship, understanding or just a friendly face, then come along to LWNE. We offer relaxation sessions, and other groups such as confidence building, arts and crafts. We also have a number of weekly drop-ins. Our regular newsletter details our future plans and activities. So, if you are feeling fed up, depressed, stressed, anxious or isolated, please phone for an informal chat or to make an appointment to come and meet us.

Eligibility

- Open to people aged 18 and over
- Available to residents of all parts of Edinburgh who are experiencing mental health difficulties
- Your first appointment will take around 45 minutes
- Service is free

It's okay for a friend, worker or family member to come with you. You can then join one of our groups or drop-in sessions. Once you are a member you can then join the groups or drop-in sessions.
