Everyone is made welcome at our informal drop-ins
We established our first regular drop-in session in 2010 in Strontian. The initial aim was to provide helpful information and the opportunity for mutual self help for any one who was experiencing problems due to mental ill health, whether their own, or through the shared suffering of a family member or friend.
As the sessions became more established, we began to realize that the social aspect of the regular meetings is just as important as the mental health help and information we aim to provide. However, that underlying aim is never forgotten, and we make it quite clear that any personal discussions which take place are confidential, and must not be taken outside the group.
Weekly Open Doors in our local villages
Following on from the success of the Strontian sessions we took the first steps to expanding into Acharacle in late 2013. The gatherings here have gone from strength to strength, possibly due to the preponderance of great bakers within the group! The scattered geography of our communities means that the unstinting commitment of our local volunteers is vital for maintaining the weekly sessions throughout the year, and we are extremely grateful to them all.
Encouraged by the uptake in Acharacle, we have recently established sessions in Kilchoan and will be re-starting these sessions on 30th October 2018. We are also investigating the prospects for Lochaline and Ardgour.
