Mental Health

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.

Open Doors

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.
