Penumbra was founded to pioneer services which provide innovative solutions to gaps in mental health service provision. This work is based on the rights of service users to choice, dignity and the expectation of recovery.
Our experience of the Scottish mental health sector allows us a unique vantage point to assess new opportunities to develop services and improve mental wellbeing, in association with current service users, partner organisations, the general public and local and national government. We can use our collective creativity to come up with new service models that offer exciting possibilities for people with mental health problems.
Penumbra offers a range of services to improve public understanding of mental health and wellbeing, which can be accessed on the left.
Overall our aim is to continue to provide, innovate and develop high quality services and activities that reflect contemporary ideas and the needs and aspirations of people to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
