Embracing Growth: Brent Centre Highlands Project Unveils New Beginnings

Date published: 24.01.2024

Excitement and anticipation fill the air as the Brent Centre Highlands clinic prepares to open its doors. In January, the clinic welcomed three new staff members, marking a significant step towards its mission of providing essential mental health services to the community. As February approaches, the team is eagerly preparing for a soft opening, anticipating the acceptance of referrals that will mark the beginning of the clinic’s service delivery. The new Centre has already been busy offering support and consultation to frontline workers in the community.

The journey to establish the Highlands Centre has been a testament to dedication and hard work. A considerable effort has been committed to setting up the clinic, ensuring that it becomes a hub for those seeking support and guidance. The response from the community has been overwhelming, with an encouraging level of engagement and support. Witnessing this genuine buy-in from the community is not only gratifying but also reinforces the importance of the project in meeting the mental health needs of the region.

A significant milestone in this journey is the unveiling of the Highlands Centre's new logo. This logo serves as a symbol of the project's commitment to inclusivity, reflecting the unique cultural and linguistic features of the Highlands. By seamlessly integrating these elements into the existing BCYP logo, the design captures the essence of unity and diversity. The logo includes the Scottish Gaelic phrase 'inntinnean fallain, soillse roimhainn' translating to 'healthy minds, brighter futures.' This addition pays homage to the rich heritage of the Highlands while echoing the core values of the Brent Centre.

The combined efforts of the dedicated team and the enthusiastic support from the community have laid a strong foundation for a centre that is poised to make a lasting impact on the mental health and wellbeing of those it serves. Stay tuned for more updates as the Highlands Centre officially opens its doors, providing a beacon of hope and support for all.

We would like to express our gratitude to our supporters and funders, for without them, none of this would be possible; Hugh Fraser Foundation, Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation, Crerar Trust, Barcapel Foundation, Scottish Children's Lottery, along with our community fundraisers and marathon runners.
