Anxiety and Depression Support Groups (Health in Mind)

Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Provided by: Health in Mind

Who is this for?

  • People aged 18 and over living with depression, low mood, stress or anxiety


The Depression and Anxiety Support Group is a friendly peer-led support group open to any adults living with depression, low mood, stress or anxiety.

It offers the opportunity for confidential local support, contact with others in a similar situation and the opportunity for you to explore positive ways of coping with depression and anxiety.

Groups are being held both online and in person.

Both groups are offered on a drop-in basis with a limit of 10 people per group session.  We do this to make sure everyone has the opportunity to share and receive feedback, although there is no obligation to do so.

If you are a carer or support someone else with additional support needs, you are welcome to accompany the person to support their participation.

How do I access this?
