The Caithness Mental Health Support Group is a voluntary non-profit making organisation. The group runs two centres – one in Wick (The Haven) and one in Thurso (Stepping Stones).
The aim of the centers is to provide a balance of activities, support and understanding in relaxed surroundings, which will encourage an increase in confidence and self-esteem of the members.
Social, educational and leisure activities will be provided either in groups or individually.
All staff will treat information and discussions in a confidential manner.
Part of the Support Group’s function is to encourage an understanding of Mental Illness and the promotion of Mental Health. We can also provide a range of information about other organisations who can offer help. A strong emphasis is placed on personal choice and members are encouraged to participate in decision making and the development of the centre.
Caithness Mental Health Support Group is a Scottish Registered Charity and receives its core funding from NHS Highland.
Contact numbers for the two centres are as follows:
