Penumbra is one of Scotland’s most innovative mental health charities, working to improve mental wellbeing for adults and young people across the nation. We provide a wide range of services which offer hope and practical steps towards recovery, including support for people in their own homes, supported accommodation, self harm reduction and dedicated youth services.

Penumbra campaigns to influence national and local government policy, and to increase public knowledge and understanding about mental ill health. Our vision is of a society where every individual is accepted, supported and has the resources to fulfil their potential, without limits caused by mental ill health.

Penumbra supports around 1600 adults and young people every week and employs 400 staff across Scotland.
