Glasgow Association for Mental Health(GAMH) is an independent Scottish charity that provides more than 2000 hours of community based support every week to people in Glasgow.
The services and opportunities we offer help people who are recovering from mental health problems to live the lives that THEY want to live. We also support Carers of people in recovery, including Young Carers. We work with people in ways that encourage hope (belief that recovery is possible) personal development and self confidence. If we support you we will recognise that you are the expert in your own life and your own health. You have the right to make your own choices and decisions. For more information about recovery see www.scottishrecovery.net
We recognise that the effects of inequality, stigma and discrimination make recovery more difficult than it should be and undermine a person's sense of wellbeing. As an organisation we work to ensure that both as a service provider and as an employer, we avoid discrimination and promote fairness and inclusion for everyone.
We work in partnership with the people we support, their allies and supporters and a range of other agencies to create the best opportunities for recovery and to overcome barriers to inclusion.
GAMH is a member of the Scottish Mental Health Co-operative www.smh-co-op.co.uk
