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.

‘’ The COVID_19 pandemic has produced significant levels of distress which is impacting on people’s mental wellbeing. COPE Scotland aims to increase what it offers in population-based work to help reduce suffering where possible and help people recover a sense of wellbeing following all that has happened.’’
