The Arches supports our community by offering confidential support, information and advice to anyone who experiences mental ill-health. We can help you make friends, overcome distress, meet others who understand, learn ways of coping better with difficult situations, learn new skills or discover hidden talents.

We can also help put you in touch with other people who can provide specific support and advice as well as assisting you to be all you can, or want to be.

Some days we have "Open House" sessions where you can just come in and enjoy a chat and a cup of tea, and benefit from the company of others. You could take part in Art and Craft, relaxation, exercise, Healthy Living sessions and much more. If you prefer just to socialise you can come along to our weekly evening gatherings, or enjoy day trips to places of interest.

Individuals referred must meet the following criteria:
  • Be aged 18-65
  • Experience mental ill-health or serious mental illness
  • Experience problems because of social isolation
  • Be resident in Banff or surrounding areas (Gardenstown, Turriff, Macduff, Whitehills, Portsoy, Aberchirder)


Referrals to the service are accepted from members of the Community Mental Health Team, G.P's, Primary Care Workers and individuals can self refer.
