Support Group – A Life Worth Living

The A Life Worth Living group aims to provide hope through creating safe spaces to support and encourage others, by meeting both as a group and online.

The group is for people affected by depression or low mood, and who and want to make a shift from the darkness of despair to the lightness of hope.

The focus of the group is:

  • To reach out to people who are isolated,
  • To play a part in changing perceptions of mental health and addiction problems in society,
  • To make connections with other organisations to offer more choice to individuals,
  • To help people build up their strengths and interests.


The group meets at Simpson House, every Thursday from 10.15 am – 12.00 pm for a discussion, then from 12.00 – 12.30 pm for lunch. Simpson House is at 52 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3Ns

Due to the success of the group we have had to temporarily close the group to new members and are looking at other ways to accommodate numbers.
