Mental Health & Wellbeing Outreach Project


The Mental Health & Wellbeing Outreach Project aims to act as a point of contact within the Uist community, offering support and information to help individuals manage their mental health and wellbeing.


The service is available for adults living throughout Uist who are experiencing mental ill health and/or emotional difficulties. Support is tailored to the requirements of each individual, and support needs are agreed at point of referral through a person-centred plan, which is kept under review by both the Outreach Worker and the individual.


What we aim to provide:


  • One to one support tailored to the current needs of each individual

  • A confidential safe space to talk

  • Help to access other support services offering specialised assistance e.g. Health Professionals, CAB, Advocacy, etc.

  • Information on mental illness and mental wellbeing for individuals, family members, and carers.

  • Information on community activities, further education courses, befriending services, etc.


The service is available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The Outreach Worker can meet with you either at your home address or at an agreed venue.


Referral procedure


Referral to the service can be made by completing a referral form. A referral can be made by:

  • A person experiencing mental health difficulties; their GP; Community Psychiatric Nurse; Social Worker; Support Worker; or other Care Worker or Health Professional.

  • A person requiring support coping with stress or anxiety.
