ABOUT REACHOUT

The Organisation

Reachout is an innovative and inclusive award winning charity which has been delivering creative opportunities, education and wellbeing to local communities experiencing life's challenges, mental ill health and disability since 1993. We work collaboratively with Forth Valley education, health & wellbeing partners to deliver a holistic service. Using expressive arts as the vehicle; the service delivery model promotes informed wellbeing choices and mental health awareness to maintain wellbeing and prevent relapse. Alongside our member-led studio programmes we collaborate and coproduce creative interventions for a range of Clackmannanshire children, young people and adults via our outreach service.

A Unique & Valuable Resource

 

Reachout ensures a safe & friendly environment for local people to get involved in a wide range of expressive arts and wellbeing activities, experience creativity, meet new people and discover hidden talent.

The Service

Access to expressive and creative arts and wellbeing opportunities delivered by professional artists for adults aged 16+.

Our self-help service removes isolation and mutual support enables individuals to learn better ways to handle common problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, poor sleep and panic attacks through expressive creative workshops.

 

Reachout promotes improved self-acceptance, a structured day and aspirations to enable a route to recovery and for some eventual return to the workplace.
