Supporting People With Their Mental Well-Being

The Meeting Place offers a unique environment in Dunoon for anybody who identifies as suffering from mental well-being issues. We believe that support between peers is invaluable in aiding recovery and will work hard to find every visitor the right person to talk to.

A little bit about us…

The group was born as we realised that there was little or no provision within the local mental health services for peer support. We decided that we’d throw an exploratory coffee morning to see what the community wanted – they told us and two weeks later the doors opened on the first session of The Meeting Place.

We are now open two days a week with the aim to be a full time service, open six days per week with hours stretching beyond business hours. We also offer a range of activities and events as well as tea, cake and home-baking.
