The Edinburgh Thrive Line will connect places and spaces which can promote and improve mental health and wellbeing.

We had invited participants at our Thrive Conference back in November 2019 to plot places and spaces on the Thrive Line which were important to their mental health and wellbeing. Participants plotted and nominated an eclectic mix of places which are detailed in our Thrive Conference Report. The intention was to provide one hour Thriving Places and Spaces training session to these places nominated to join to the Thrive Line. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have not been able to progress this.

However, during this time of social and physical distancing we are mindful that people may be discovering or rediscovering places and spaces which are important to you in terms of how they make you feel, how they connect or reconnect you to what is important to you.

We would love you to share your important places and spaces with us and we will add to the Edinburgh Thrive Line. We will then invite people that may work, volunteer or spend time in these places and spaces a one hour “Thriving Spaces and Places” Seminar so that we can make sure that places and spaces on the Thrive Line are aware of how kindness, compassion and relationships are essential components of protecting and promoting our individual and city’s mental health and wellbeing.

If you would like to send in your photos of your Thrive Spaces then you can complete a form and Join the Thrive Line, letting the team know where it is and why it is important to you.
