We are Penumbra Mental Health, a pioneering charity providing dedicated services for people experiencing mild to serious and enduring mental ill health.
We support people on their journey to better mental health, by working with each person to find their own way forward.
The power of people’s lived experience enables us to provide pioneering services which transform lives.
The Penumbra approach
Your journey. Your way.
Of course, everyone’s journey is different, so we work with people to identify, believe in, and reach their goals, whatever they may be.
Often, it’s about hope, but we know that’s not always easy for people to hold on to. And so, when times are tough, we hold it for each person, keeping it safe – just until the time is right.
You see, Penumbra has always been about people; listening and learning, challenging, encouraging and enabling . It’s why we’re trusted to provide services across Scotland, supporting thousands of adults and young people every month, because when people need us, we’re there.
Campaigning for change through the power of lived experience
We’ve long championed the power of lived experience and we’re proud to be the largest employer of mental health peer workers in Scotland.
By listening and working alongside people with lived and living experience of mental health recovery, we’re able to create meaningful change across Scotland.
Supporting people to share their mental health journeys will always be an empowering part of our work in promoting positive and hope-filled messages around mental health.
