I had the opportunity to visit Penumbra, in Ardrossan and meet with Support Manager, Helen Gibson, who took the time to tell me all about the important work carried out by this mental health charity across North Ayrshire.

Founded in 1985, this is one of Scotland’s largest mental health charities, working to promote mental health and wellbeing, help to prevent poor mental health for those who are ‘at risk’ and to support those already living with mental health challenges

A wide range of services are offered to give hope and practical steps towards recovery and I was interested to hear all about the Peers 4 Hope service offering those facing mental health challenges support from those with lived experience of these challenges.
