Welcome to Empathy in Mind!

About Us

We are an Edinburgh carer-led Group which offers a safe and confidential space for any carer who may be experiencing the challenging and difficult behaviours associated with mental health problems. We do this via our Empathy in Mind Group...

How Can We Help?

Our Empathy in Mind Group provides a warm, welcome and safe space to be able to meet and chat about any of the difficulties you may be experiencing, with people who can empathise and appreciate what you may be going through.

How We Are Keeping Safe

As a group we will adhere to the guidelines as set out by the Scottish Government with regard to the Covid19 pandemic.

When meeting in the Botanic Cottage we are also following guidelines as set out by the staff of the Royal Botanic Garden.

We will not mix with other groups in the cottage at the same time.

We will keep windows / door(s) open whenever possible.

We will keep to social distancing requirements.

We will wear a face mask when standing / moving around, unless exempted.

We expect participants to be triple vaccinated, unless exempted.

We expect participants to have taken a Lateral Flow Test on the morning of the meeting.

Empathy in Mind Video

This video was made for our charity by some amazing students at Holyrood High School in Edinburgh.

It aims to show that many people experience mental health problems and benefit from support.
