Projekt 42 has launched online counselling and mental health support and has counsellors available for immediate support to those in need right now.
Adults living in the most deprived areas of Scotland such as Leith are twice as likely to experience mental health issues (22% versus 11%). Residents of deprived communities are 2.5 times more likely to die by suicide and four times more likely to experience two symptoms of depression.
We have counselling spots available right now for those in need to self-refer and gain the support they need. Obtaining help is easy, fill out this form, and our mental health team will be in touch https://www.projekt42.co.uk/self-referral
Current social isolation, loneliness and anxiety over the unknown are further contributing to mental health challenges. Our mission is to make mental health services accessible for everyone, and we offer free and reduced-rate counselling services to vulnerable members of our community in Edinburgh.
Our charitable model is award-winning; we commit over 40% of gym membership and class fees to support the well-being of our community.
Counselling will be delivered digitally using the charities new online platform, email and telecare are also provided. Once safe to do so, we will move to in-person support. Counselling costs are income assessed, and we offer free and subsidised sessions to those who need financial help.
