Edinburgh – pop-up wellbeing cafe
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
Our Scottish partner charity, Change Mental Health, plan to open a pop-up mental health and wellbeing café on an Edinburgh high street. The café, which would be the first of its kind north of the border, will create a safe, nurturing and stigma-free space at the heart of the community where anyone who is struggling with their mental health can engage with trained staff and find out about other services they can access. Visitors to the café will also be able to access treatment, with plans to offer a range of therapy specialisms on-site which can be booked in half-hour slots to make talking therapy as accessible as possible.
Prosper in 2022
The pandemic has had a profound impact on mental health; millions of people will develop a mental health problem, or have seen their existing conditions worsen.
Our partnership with Lloyds Banking Group is helping us to deliver much needed mental health services to people and communities across the UK.
