SAMH is Scotland’s national mental health charity. 

Today, in over 60 communities we work with adults and young people providing mental health social care support, services in primary care, schools and further education, among others.  These services together with our national programme work in See Me, respectme, suicide prevention and active living; inform our policy and campaign work to influence positive social change.

SAMH is dedicated to mental health and well-being for all and has been around since 1923. Our vision is of a society where people are able to live their lives fully, regardless of present or past circumstances. Our values underpin everything we do. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity, respect and equality.

Within the area of Leith, Edinburgh, SAMH provides housing support and outreach to people with severe and enduring mental health issues in their own homes where staff support people to develop, regain and maintain independent living skills.
