Talking Point provides a relaxed, safe, non-judgmental environment for men to talk about their state of mind and how it affects their lives. There is no requirement to speak, but we recognise the challenges and stigma of mental health difficulties, particularly among men, and hope to provide a place to help change this.
Meets 7pm, 1st Wednesday each month, currently at Laing Park, home of Carnoustie Panmure FC. Tea & coffee etc provided.

STRIDE is a registered charity (SC044225) which aims to relieve poverty and alleviate suffering of African people in Angus and Dundee city, Scotland and the wider UK.
STRIDE organises and coordinates events aimed at bringing together both African people and other people in the local neighbourhoods in planning on things like local community engagement activities, gardening activities, helping young people with career choices, signposting Africans to other agencies for support with problems such as abuse, gender-based violence, mental health and other social/economic problems.
STRIDE predominantly works in Angus and Dundee city councils.
Social isolation and loneliness are major causes of mental health problems and other anti-social problems amongst inter-generational African people in Angus and Dundee city. Due to their migratory pattern, some African families are isolated due to lack of extended families for support and lack of a community project to bring them together.
Working in partnership with Dundee City Council and NHS Tayside we provide accommodation linked and visiting support services across the city with a focus on supporting people with mental health problems, learning disabilities and individuals including autism spectrum disorder and physical disabilities.
Angus Independent Advocacy is an independent organisation working alongside vulnerable people to help them have their voice heard and safeguard their rights. We work with people who are at risk of being unable to safeguard their rights, and who may have:
mental ill health
a learning disability
an acquired brain injury, or
are an older person.
The aims of Angus Voice are:
To influence the strategic direction of Adult Mental Health Services locally, regionally and nationally, and contribute to their overall improvement;
To support Contributors to become actively involved in the planning, development, evaluation and improvement of mental health services delivered by the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors in Angus;
To raise awareness of mental health issues within the wider community, including in Further Education establishments; and challenge the stigma associated with mental ill health.
Why is Angus Voice Important?
People with direct experience of mental health problems have a unique perspective and expertise. Collective advocacy is an opportunity to harness this expertise and use it to benefit and influence the ways in which mental health services in Angus are developed and run, to educate professionals and the public, and to empower and influence contributors’ lives.
We work across Angus, and our office is based in the Angus Independent Advocacy building at 60 High Street, Arbroath DD11 1AW.
