Chris’s House – The Living Room

Vote for Chris's House

At Chris’s House we are building on our guests’ capacity to self-manage their mental health and emotional resilience as well as our volunteers capacity to offer our guests the supported steps from suicidal crisis to well being.

Due to increasing demand and limited space at our current premises we are in the process of moving to a larger building in Wishaw. This will enable us to expand our service and the menu of opportunities we have available to offer our guests more options to increase personal competence and confidence in skills that can counter negative thinking, despair, hopelessness and isolation and most importantly, use the person’s lived experience of suicidal thoughts, mental ill health alongside their needs, wishes and strengths. We also want to escalate our community outreach and involvement that in turn will offer interaction and connections made with other people, groups and services which are critical to ensuring recovery is maintained.

We need your vote at the People’s Project to support us in achieving this move and to ensure that our new building – The Living Room – is as homely, calming, welcoming and as therapeutic as we can make it!

Please Vote for us to go on saving lives. Voting lines open 9am Monday on 20th March we will keep you updated on this and how to vote.

Please keep sharing and watching the website  for the latest information on this amazing project.

You will be voting for Region STV West. – www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk

Chris’s House – Walk of Hope

Chris's House Walk of Hope

We at Chris’s House are really excited to be organising our Walk of Hope event in Glasgow on the morning of the 6th May 2017 at 4:15am.

While raising money is obviously important, it’s more about raising awareness for us, especially at the local level. The most effective way of raising awareness for people in Scotland is to run this event through Chris’s House.

We have worked really close with Pieta House – Darkness into Light throughout the years and that relationship will continue going forward but we felt now was the correct time for Chris’ House to grow and take on more responsibility to raise awareness of a very important issue.

Hope to see you all on the 6th.
