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

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 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.
