About us

WIAMH is a small local charity in the Western Isles, Scotland, founded in 1996 as a membership based Association and incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in 2003.

 

Catch 23 is a a mental health drop-in centre in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, operated by WIAMH.  The Centre is open 12 to 4pm Monday to Friday and 11am to 3pm on Saturdays.

 

Catch 23 is a user led service and we aim to provide an informal, relaxed and safe place for people to meet without the fear of being judged by the stigma of mental health and the issues that surround it. 

 

In order to maintain the right atmosphere in the Centre we keep rules to a minimum and we don’t require huge amounts of information from the members who use our facilities.

We are not a counselling service but have many contacts throughout the Western Isles who may be able to give you any advice you may need.

 

We also offer a range of activities including:

  • Arts
  • Creative Writing
  • Internet Access
  • Gardening
  • Tea & Coffee / Healthy Eating Information

 

WIAMH is funded primarily by grants from statutory and independent sources.  We also receive some substantial donations as a result of fundraising efforts.  We give our thanks and appreciation to the organisers and participants in these events.  

Any queries or concerns?

Please call us on 01851 704964 or you can use our contact form and we will get back to you.
