Sam’s Cafe

Sam's is a mental health peer support service provided by SAMH across Fife. 

Peer Workers at Sam's each have personal experience of mental ill health, and are trained and employed by us to help others. We offer support with mental health, crisis support, challenging thoughts and suicidal thoughts. At Sam's, the support is free of cost, accessible and available evenings and weekends. You do not need a referral or an appointment. Our service also offers support to the family, carers and friends of people experiencing mental health problems.
