For Scotland's Mental Health

We are SAMH (Scottish Action for Mental Health)

We’re here for you, providing mental health support and accessible, practical information.

From national services, like our confidential Infoline and online wellbeing support Time for You, to our 70 services based in communities across Scotland, we work every day to support better mental health and wellbeing.

We listen to what matters locally and we campaign nationally – for the changes, big and small, that can make all the difference in life. Because now, more than ever, we need to make change happen. 

We’re taking action for Scotland’s mental health.
