AN East Renfrewshire charity is providing a lifeline service to those who are struggling with their mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.

Like many organisations, Recovery Across Mental Health (RAMH) has had to adapt quickly to these challenging times.

One way the team at the charity’s Barrhead-based Causeway project are doing so is by providing video or telephone calls to ensure no-one misses out on the support they need.
These include calls to help improve anxiety management and self-esteem.

In addition, there are online groups – such as Singing for Wellbeing and Men Do Talk – taking place throughout the week, using the Zoom video conferencing platform.

RAMH information/education worker Katie Mercer, said: “We encourage people to seek support should they require it. Help is still available and we have adapted our services in order to adhere to the guidance from the Scottish Government and keep everyone safe.”

If you feel like you are struggling, call RAMH on 0141 881 8811 or go online at
