Since 1923, SAMH has been Scotland’s mental health charity.
We are very pleased that SAMH will be joining us at Pit Stop Partners at ALL FOUR of our 2023 events.
Today, in over 60 communities we work with adults and young people to provide mental health social care support and services in primary care, schools and further education settings, among others. We listen to what matters in each local community, and campaign nationally for the changes that make the big and little differences in life. Now more than ever, we need to make change happen. We’re standing up for Scotland’s mental health and you can join us by taking part in the 2023 Kiltwalk.
We all have mental health, just as we have physical health, and it’s important that we take the time to look after it. Our Wellbeing Assessment tool is available to everyone and can be useful to help monitor how you’re feeling. However, this is not intended to replace a consultation with a GP if you are struggling.
There are little things we can work into our regular routines to support our well-being. Evidence shows five of the most impactful ways to care for your mental health are to be active, connect, learn, give and take notice. You can find out more by downloading our 5 Ways to Better Wellbeing guide.
If you’re living with a mental health problem, or supporting someone who is, accessing information about a relevant condition is vital. SAMH has developed a series of guides to help us all become better informed about mental health problems.
"We have all heard that being active is so important for our physical health, but it is also central to good mental health and well-being. Even small things like going for a walk or doing some stretches can have huge benefits, like reducing stress, boosting self-esteem, and helping us to connect with others." Robert Nesbitt, Head of Physical Activity and Sport at SAMH
