In your community

What do we do?

Our regional community teams work with you to help you understand your symptoms, and to access treatment and therapies to support your recovery. 

Our community teams

We have community psychiatric nurses and occupational therapists in our community teams in West Scotland, East Scotland and Highlands. They offer groups, workshops and individual therapy sessions.

Our Psycho-education groups

The groups run over three months and each one focuses on a different area. We cover different topics including advice about anxiety, depression, sleep, trauma, substance misuse and anger management.

Our occupational therapy workshops

Occupational therapy can help rebuild your life by focusing on work, leisure and how to look after yourself. We encourage you to think about exploring volunteering or paid work, studying or learning a new skill or hobby. 

We run occupational therapy workshops in the community. The workshops run over seven weeks and each one focuses on a different area. We look at topics including physical health and well-being, relationships, behaviour, beliefs, emotions and thinking. It is a safe environment to discover new skills, problem solve difficulties and build a toolbox of skills, encouraging you to play an active part in your daily life with friends and family.
