Mindspace Limited (registered 2014), formerly Perth Association for Mental Health, was formed in 1981 by Margaret Lamond. She recognised the value of a self-help group for people recovering from mental illness meeting for mutual support.
Our services have developed since then to include Mindspace Counselling Service. Counselling is delivered both in Perth City and at a number of rural locations around Perthshire. Our counselling service is open to individuals over 11 years of age.
Mindspace Recovery College is our latest enhancement where anyone in our community can learn more about living with and managing mental health. There are also sessions on life skills, employability skills and supporting others through peer support. This is done working alongside people with lived experience of mental ill health.
“In my experience Mindspace are sector leaders in Scotland for quality recovery service delivery in the voluntary sector. Other providers across Scotland would do well to adopt their practice and models in supporting recovery in mental health care.” External Stakeholder, 2015
“I'm amazed at how effective Mindspace is at helping people manage their mental health issues and foster independence and self-reliance.” External Stakeholder, 2015
