Health

A friend in need

I would like to thank readers of the Advertiser for responding to the recent news article, “Befriending offers health support” which asked for people to become volunteer befrienders with Health in Mind’s re:discover Midlothian service. The service supports people experiencing mental ill health who are looking to move forward in life and, with a little support from their volunteer, work towards specific goals. Our new volunteers will attend the one-day training course and for anyone who would still like to volunteer, there will be more courses in the next few months. If you would like to know more about volunteering, ring Lisa Hodkinson, Health in Mind’s re:discover Midlothian Support and Development Worker on 07760 753020 or 0131 225 8508. Thanks again to Advertiser readers for responding and we look forward to seeing our new volunteers very soon.
