The Cottage is a resource centre for those affected by mental ill health. It is attractively situated by the River Ness in the heart of the city.
Through a balance of activities and social interaction, our aim is to encourage peer support which may build up confidence thus aiding the recovery process.
The Cottage offers a cafe providing nourishing and inexpensive meals and snacks. There is a lounge where people can relax and meet others.
We also facilitate Hearing Voices and Bi-Polar peer support groups, with additional groups such as relaxation, crafting, etc.
We operate a self referral system, but also welcome referrals from other agencies and professionals.
Our opening hours are as follows:
Monday 12:30 - 4:30
Sunday 2-5 (dates will vary)
