Gateways To Service

It was recognised by SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) that a large percentage of people experiencing mental health difficulties remain isolated and disengaged from resources within their communities - resources that could improve their health and well-being and also prevent isolation.

Gateways To will offer support (for up to 20 weeks dependent on the persons needs) to people with mild to moderate mental health difficulties including addictions. Our aim is to support  a person’s recovery by addressing social isolation through the development of social networks, and improve access to mainstream community resources and activities. The service works with individuals on a one to one basis, providing person centred support based around personal needs and presenting barriers.

The Service has formed strong partnerships with community resources to enable clear pathways for individuals and has an extensive data base of all local resources,

in areas including

  • Education
  • Vocational
  • Health
  • Sport
  • Volunteering
  • Social Activities

The service provides pre-community engagement personal development workshops in

  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Resilience
  • Confidence& Self Esteem
  • Assertivness

Referral sources: GP's Primary Care, CPN's Short Stay Psychiatric Hospital and Addiction Services
