Charity information


SAMH is the Scottish Association for Mental Health. We are Scotland’s mental health charity. Every year, we provide over a million hours of support to people who need our help. Every week, we work with around 3,000 people in over 80 services. Every day, we campaign for better mental health for the people of Scotland.

SAMH does four things:

- We provide direct services to around 3,000 people who have mental health problems, addiction issues or are homeless or are at risk of homelessness

- We campaign to promote good mental health and to improve legislation, policy and business practice as they relate to people with mental health problems

- We deliver national programmes on stigma, trauma, sport and physical activity, bullying and suicide prevention

- We fundraise in order to continue our charitable activities.
