About Us

RAMH promotes recovery from mental ill health, and empowers people to build independent, fulfilled lives.

We do this in 6 ways

  • by providing immediate support in crisis situations
  • by supporting people in their own homes with individualised care and practical support
  • by providing counselling and social, therapeutic, creative and educational groups
  • by promoting self management and empowering individuals to achieve their potential
  • by supporting carers, family and friends through education and information
  • by raising awareness to break down the barriers, inequalities and stigma around mental health

Our values

  • RAMH believes that people have the potential to recover from mental ill health
  • RAMH uses the ideals of recovery and support to reinforce hope, respect and equality
  • RAMH recognises individuals’ strengths and empowers individuals to find solutions and to create meaningful lives

We were recently supported by students from West College Scotland to make a short video about our work. This video was initially shown at our annual Quiz and dinner on 25th May 2018 to help us celebrate 40 years of RAMH.
