About Us

EDICT is a charity based in Kirkintilloch that helps people with a range of mental & physical health conditions.

Our service helps participants to improve their physical and mental well-being by enabling them to begin to value themselves and achieve a more positive outlook on life.

They also become more confident, less isolated and able to relate with and inter-act with others.

Our qualified staff encourage the participants to engage with and develop their creativity as a means of self-nurture; building the self-esteem which is often lost during illness

As an alternative to clinical interventions, EDICT finds the time to get to know the individual and plan a programme of support for as long as it takes.

Through the use of group and 1: 1 intervention, EDICT seeks to reduce stress and enhance emotional and psychological well-being.
