One-to-one wellbeing support
Last updated: 10/12/2019
We provide one-to-one mental health and wellbeing support for single mothers in all our local services. This involves individual help with practical and emotional issues getting in the way of good mental health and wellbeing.
Following the announcement on Monday 16 March regarding Covid 19, we will be suspending our face-to-face work in Glasgow, Dundee, Falkirk, Lanarkshire and Edinburgh. This includes groups, courses and one-to-one support.
Feeling in control of some aspects of your life can really support your mental health. Enjoying better mental health can also benefit your children, which means that all of you can experience a home environment that feels a little happier.
We can help provide emotional and practical support in a confidential space, while working with you to:
- Create a personal action plan.
- Set realistic and achievable goals.
- Research activities and help you make connections in your local area.
- Get in touch with other services where appropriate and agreed by you.
- Develop kindness and compassion for yourself – you are doing your best.
