SAMH opens Sam's Cafe: A Peer Support Community Cafe in Fife
Sam's is not your average cafe. Yes tea & coffee is available for all. But it's also about having support there if you need it. Sam's is here if you feel that you are in crisis and would benefit from having peer support. It is a relaxed space to just be, where you can find people who understand that every day is different. You do not need to be referred, individuals 16+ are welcome to just pop in. If you feel that you need some support you can speak to their peer practitioners.
What is Peer Support? Peer Support is provided by individuals who have experienced mental health issues and a personal recovery journey. Peers promote a sense of hope and encouragement which role models that recovery is possible. Peer workers will work with you in developing your resiliency to work through issues. Pop in for a cuppa and a chat at Linton Lane Centre, Linton Lane, Kirkcaldy, KY2 6LF anytime between 2.00pm - 10.00pm on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
If you would like more information about the Cafe please contact SAMH by phoning 07971 892 886 or e-mail [email protected].
Ongoing volunteering opportunities are available at Sam's Cafe.
