MIDLOTHIAN WELLBEING ACCESS POINT

If you’re feeling low and stressed and want to do something about it, there’s a service that couldn’t be easier to access – you just turn up.

The Midlothian Wellbeing Access Point provides a drop-in service for anyone living in Midlothian who is experiencing feeling low or stressed and wants to make changes. The service is all about reducing people’s feelings of low mood and stress and increasing their confidence and self-esteem.

You would be supported to improve your wellbeing and to understand more about why you’re feeling down and you would hear about local groups, activities and services that can help and how to access the support that will work best for you.
Popping into the Access Point only takes an hour or so out of your day but it could make a big difference to your life.

The service is available to anyone living in Midlothian aged between 18 and 65 and it is delivered by NHS Lothian, Midlothian Council and Health in Mind.
