Express Group

Express Group (Fife) Ltd is a mental health charity operating in Fife for almost fifty years. We provide group activities and one-to-one work for people over 18 experiencing poor mental health. The aim of the Groups is to provide a safe place where service users can share experiences and support each other (peer support). This aim is as relevant today as it was in 1977, and the number of people living in the community with mental health problems is as large as ever. 

For some, the Groups are perhaps the only place they can meet people and socialise; for others, they are a chance to help and show what they can do. Although the Groups are supported by volunteer helpers, many of whom have given years of service, and by paid staff, they are in essence what their users of the service make them. All the Groups are safe places where people can relax and move forward at their own pace, but each Group has its own character.  

At our groups, participants receive a light breakfast of toast and tea/coffee (bottomless) and a simple cooked lunch at the end. Activities are decided by the participants and include playing board games, doing arts and crafts, doing crosswords and other puzzles, playing bingo, or just sitting and chatting with old and new friends.  

If you or someone you know want to find out more about the Groups, please get in touch with us. We have a referral system in place for joining our groups. Referral and self-referral forms can be downloaded from our website or  
requested from the office by sending an email to [email protected]
