The Project

We understand from working with people who have mental health problems that loneliness and feeling isolated can be a real problem. The Angus McFlourish project aims to reduce this.

Part one of this project is making a diary of events for people to go to. We want to find activities that people can go along to alone or with a friend, that don’t cost a lot of money and give you the opportunity to make new friends. Currently, we are making a plan for these activities for a year so people with mental health problems in Arbroath can choose which activities they’d like to do.

Part two of the project is making a list of activities run by other people that are mental health friendly in Arbroath or the surrounding area. If you have a business like this, or know of one, then let us know by emailing alice@otbds.org.

Finally, we will be sharing tips on how to prevent loneliness. From discussions with Angus Voice, and other groups we work with, we know that feeling down and isolated can be quite a common experience if you have mental health problems. If you have any tips you could share then send us an email at alice@otbds.org. We know that Christmas and New Year are especially difficult times if you have mental health problems so we have made a booklet to share the groups tips for coping at this time.
