Glasgow Association for Mental Health
GAMH is an independent charity registered in Scotland. We promote the mental health and wellbeing of people and their communities; providing more than 2000 hours of community based support every week to people in Glasgow.
Our current services are preventative and purposeful in nature and increase the factors known to protect and promote good mental health. We recognise the need to maintain and develop strong community partnerships with all GAMH stakeholders and the importance of having a focus and commitment to the wider mental health and recovery networks. We do this by working with partner agencies across Scotland and beyond which supports us to provide innovative and effective service options and opportunities for people with lived experience of mental health and their carers.
GAMH has a diverse group of staff, volunteers, service users, carers and members who actively contribute their experiences and knowledge to shape our organisation’s values, vision and culture.
