Our Story

The Story of Reach Across

Reach Across was born in 2015 after the tragic loss of a loved one to suicide. Now a registered charity based in Arbroath, we voluntarily provide help and support for people who are experiencing mental health issues.

We actively plan events and fundraisers to ensure that the people who need help can receive all the support possible. Due to overwhelming support from the local community, we now have our own premises named ‘The Haven’, which in turn provides a safe and confidential environment for people to express their thoughts and feelings! We would like to thank everyone for your support so far and encourage you to get in touch if you, or somebody you know, are suffering from mental health issues. Together we can reduce the stigma!
