Welcome to Ewen’s Room – Come on in.
Ewen’s Room is a mental health and wellbeing charity based in the West Highlands of Scotland. We are passionate about supporting mental health and wellbeing and working to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health issues.
If you need someone to talk to, our free helpline is there to support you, or we can mach you with one of our friendly volunteers on our EwenMe telephone befriending service if you would prefer a regular chat.
For young people in our local area, our Education Officer provides mental health awareness lessons in schools, and we offer free access to counselling for those up to the age of 25.
Please explore Ewen’s Room online to learn more about our work, sign up for our newsletter and read Ewen’s story.
I thought it would be helpful today to talk about an aspect of mental health support, more specifically, peer support.

One in four of us can expect to experience some form of mental ill health at some point in our lives. Ewen’s Room take a proactive approach to supporting mental health and wellbeing, as well as supporting those experiencing mental health problems, whilst actively seeking to challenge the associated stigma.
Our weekly online sessions provide an opportunity for a regular chat and catch-up, although currently you will have to provide your own tea and cake due to the restrictions on face-to-face gatherings. Open Doors sessions currently run on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
We operate two telephone support services and a textline where you can speak to one of our trained volunteers who understands about remote rural life. One support line offers a regular call from a volunteer at a time that suits you – the other helpline and the textline support people experiencing mental distress when they feel they need it.
