The Listening Space is a safe space where you can explore your mental health recovery.

It’s a peer support group setting which invites you to promote your mental health recovery using personal experience and shared learning.

You’ll be supported by your peers in a safe and non-judgemental environment.

Listening Spaces are facilitated by a member of our staff or a trained volunteer who will help to guide each session and ensure the groups remain safe.

Each Listening Space lasts up to 2 hours and is delivered online and in person. You are welcome to attend as many or as few as you like.

It is open to anyone aged 16 or over living in the Scottish Borders and we accept self-referrals.

There is no referral Process, you are welcome to just come along and join in.
