This week on the blog we have a piece from long-term Mind Waver, Laura. This is such a relatable one about the worries that can accompany ‘going out’, and the fear and negative thoughts that are all too common when you live with social anxiety. I wanted to share and see if anyone else does this, […]
On the last Monday of January, we held our final open mic event at the Dream Machine, using funding from their Betty McAllister Award. We’ve held six of these events over the last six months, and heard a myriad of tunes, poems and party pieces from the Mind Wavers. We thought it would be nice […]
We’re revisiting some of our old blog posts this January. With the cold, dreary weather, the pressure of new year’s resolutions, and the myth of Blue Monday, January is tough . Be kind to yourself – and have a read. This post was originally uploaded January 13th 2023. We’re almost halfway through January now, and I’m […]

We also facilitated […]
We’ve all been there. Sometimes, you wake up and you just know it’s going to be a bad day. Or maybe things started off okay, and then due to bad news, low energy levels, or maybe just a classic bad mood, the day turns sour. It’s really easy to let a bad day catch hold […]
This week on the blog we’re resharing a post written by Hilda from COPE Scotland. She discusses ways to remain positive during the winter months, because winter can be a difficult time for everybody, and especially those with mental ill health. We think her words are more relevant now than ever! There is no two […]
