Tayside

Change Mental Health works closely with the Tayside community to provide early information and support to people who require help with their mental health needs

We have a large footprint in Tayside: working closely with the community to provide early information and support to people who require help with their mental health needs.

Change Mental Health promotes resilience and recovery, supporting people to integrate into their local community across Tayside.

Our approach involves supporting people in overcoming everyday life stresses and rebuilding their lives, with lived experience at the core of our work. We aim to raise awareness of mental health in rural areas, fight stigma, and ensure that nobody is left behind. 

Our role is to offer guidance, information, and a range of support, from emotional support to complex issues such as housing, finances and employment. We also offer group sessions where you can socialise, meet new people, learn new skills, or receive peer support.

We work with and build partnerships with other organisations to ensure you receive relevant support and help you achieve your goals. Once you feel comfortable making that leap, we are keen to signpost and support you in taking the next step of your journey.

It’s our goal to make sure you are not facing life’s difficulties alone, especially when poor mental health and mental illness makes it a much bigger task.

It’s like a lifeline. You know every week there’s going to be a phone call and you can tell them exactly what’s wrong. You know if there’s a problem or if you’re in trouble, you can just ring them – which has proved to be extremely helpful in a lot of ways. It’s the bedside manner, they just know. They do stuff off their own backs and they do care. It’s like having a friend as well as somebody to support you.”
– Dawn, Carers’ Support & Resilience service user
