See Me are holding a focus group for people with experience of mental health issues in Inverness at the Spectrum Centre from 12.15 – 3pm on Friday 13th April. This is a free and informal event with lunch provided.
They are keen to hear from people with lived experience of mental health issues their views and ideas on how to improve community spirit and individual lives. This will be a conversation to explore your thoughts on the relationships you have within your community; what might work locally to support communities (for example, more opportunities to connect with people through community activities such as Village Fetes and Street Festivals or groups such as walking or lunch clubs); and what national support would be useful.
They will be using this to inform their response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the social isolation and loneliness strategy, A Connected Scotland.
