Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

A dynamic organisation led by the voices of lived experience of mental, emotional, distress and health inequalities.

Working collectively and collaboratively we seek to find solutions to the daily issues and challenges of life; which can cause mental and emotional distress. Is anxiety or depression as a result of economic uncertainty an illness? Will a tablet be the cure? Or, as a society does something need to change? ......

‘’ The economic crisis is expected to produce secondary mental health effects that may increase suicide and alcohol death rates’’

Offers direct support to individuals as well as workshops, advice, information and signposting to individuals aged 16 and over living in West Glasgow experiencing mental and emotional distress. Services are offered 5 days a week from 20 Drumchapel Rd and one day a week from The Yoker Resource Centre.

COPE Digital

An online learning portal for tips and ideas to maintain emotional and mental wellbeing. Building resilience to life challenges which can cause distress, and share for free what we have learned and co-designed working with people with lived experience, for you to use yourself or share with others.


Working in partnership and linking to wider developments in health and social care integration and transformation in primary care, explore ways to share what we have learned; through Caring Over People’s Emotions, for others to adopt and adapt as fits with their services.

With partners and the voices of lived experience continue to explore new interventions which can support wellbeing and resilience to life challenges and share online with the world.
