RAMH is a well-established recovery focused community and employability support service for individuals and families experiencing mental health issues.    ACUMEN is a service user and carer network which operates across Argyll & Bute, East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde & Renfrewshire. It aims to bring service users & carers together to support development and positive change in mental health services.
