For Scotland's Mental Health

We are SAMH, Scottish Action for Mental Health

Because action is what is needed for Scotland’s mental health today, tomorrow and in the future.

As our centenary year draws to a close, we have been thinking about the future. Looking forward to the next century, our name has changed to better reflect what we do.

Our new name is accompanied by a fresh look that encompasses all the things that people love about the SAMH brand with some modern twists. But we want to do more than we have ever done to take action for Scotland’s mental health.

We must innovate, change and evolve to be here for people who need us now and for those who will need us in the future.
