Mental Health Charity takes Positive Steps with new service
SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) have redesigned and launched a new approach to community engagement which aims to provide the people of North Ayrshire with mental health problems, a more accessible service to support them build relationships within the community and lead fulfilling lives. The redesigned service is supported by North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.
The service, named Positive Steps (formerly known as Buccleuch Clubhouse and Community Horizons) based at 21 Station Road Stevenston, will utilise resources and opportunities that are already available in North Ayrshire to help individuals self-manage their mental health. The service will deliver tailored one-to-one support based on individual needs and provide access to SAMH’s Tools for Living Programme; providing the tools and skills people need to seek and sustain volunteering and employment opportunities.
Positive Steps will also develop peer support opportunities to enable people who use the service to learn and share from each others experience. For more information surrounding SAMH Positive Steps service, please call 01294 604384 or email Ann Reid. Find them on Facebook too.
