The Hope Cafe
The Hope Cafe is a friendly, welcoming and supportive community cafe for everyone. It pops up every second Thursday from 10 am until 2 pm in the hall of St Ninian’s Church in Stonehouse, Lanarkshire.
We work hard to tackle the stigma and discrimination which is faced by people who experience mental health problems by speaking openly about mental ill-health.
We have information stalls and free training opportunities for the local community. Free self-help resources and information leaflets are always available at our community café along with an enjoyable cuppa and chat.
Each week we have a range of therapies available, all free of charge, including massage, reiki, aromatherapy, relaxation sessions, mindfulness and informal peer support. Individual therapies are normally available on a first come, first served basis.
At 10:45am a reading group discusses a short piece of writing, a poem or a song, making connections to life and each other.
If you’d like to come along but feel a little nervous please contact us by either calling or texting 07340 859713 to speak to one of our volunteers who will arrange to meet you outside the door to accompany you inside to a warm welcome. We look forward to seeing you!
