Here is the November 2017 Newsletter/What’s On from Edinburgh Community Voices and AdvoCard:

2017 11 AdvoCard Newsletter

We hope you find the Newsletter useful – it has lots of information about support group meetings and other events. Please let us know if there is anything you would like us to include on a regular basis or if you would like to write something for a future edition.

The next main Edinburgh Community Voices meeting will take place:

  • on Wednesday 1 November
  • between 2pm and 4pm
  • at AdvoCard, 332 Leith Walk, EH6 5BR
  • free tea, coffee and biscuits and some good conversation
  • All welcome including Outlook Students and Redhall Trainees.

Outlook Students: Patricia will be at the Information Station on Thursday 2 November between 11am and 1230pm. Please come along for tea/coffee biscuits and chat.

Redhall Trainees: Patricia will be at the Clock cafe on Thursday 2 November between 2pm and 6pm. This is a drop-in session just for Redhall Trainees to come along to discuss their concerns about the changes to the service and how they are feeling about it all. Tea/coffee and a safe space for conversation.

NHS staff and service users are very welcome to attend the Service Improvement Group on Wednesday 8 November between 2pm and 3.30pm… and for people supported by Community Mental Health Team services in Edinburgh, you can stay for the Cambridge Street Community Voices meeting that follows the SIG, from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.

Redhall Trainees are welcome to attend either or both of these meetings if they feel able to share their concerns with other people with lived experience.

Edinburgh Community Voices meetings are open to anyone with lived experience of mental health issues. If you have not been to and Edinburgh Community Voices meeting before and would like to come along you can call or email to ask us about what we do at the meetings.
