Mental Health Services

Our friendships focus on a recovery model, using the Refocus model, which helps support our Friends to build confidence and to take greater control of their lives by meeting life goals they have set themselves.  Refocus aims to help our Friends to have hope for the future and enables our coordinators and volunteers to work alongside them to grow and live as well as possible, with or without symptoms.

Services are available across the whole Highland Region for people aged 18+ who have experience of mental ill health.

People can choose either Face to Face Befriending (Inverness, Nairn, Alness, Invergordon, Dingwall, Caithness, and Skye & Lochalsh only) or Distance Befriending (Telephone, Letter, Email, Video Call, or through Gaming), whichever best suits their needs.
