Penumbra Mental Health, is a pioneering charity providing dedicated services for people with mild to serious and enduring mental ill health.
Penumbra support people on their journey to better mental health, by working with each person to find their own way forward. The power of people’s lived experience enables them to provide pioneering services which transform lives.
“From being there for people in crisis to suicide prevention, supported living to self-harm management and peer support. We are with those we support every step of their journey to a better place.
People’s experiences are at the centre of everything that we do. We champion peer workers; we know that recovery is possible, because they’ve been there too.
Of course, everyone’s journey is different, so we work with people to identify, believe in, and reach their goals, whatever they may be. Often, it’s about hope, but we know that’s not always easy for people to hold on to. And so, when times are tough, we hold it for each person, keeping it safe – just until the time is right.
You see, Penumbra has always been about people; listening and learning, challenging, encouraging and enabling.
It’s why we’re trusted to provide services across Scotland, supporting thousands of adults and young people every month, because when people need us, we’re there.”
