Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH)

Van Gogh Alive is proud to announce a new partnership with Scotland’s leading mental health charity, the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH). SAMH has served Scotland since around 1923, providing mental health support in over 60 communities across the country, as well as working with organisations to develop ground-breaking campaigns and influence government action. Their most recent manifesto Standing up for Mental Health, released in the run up to the 2021 Scottish Parliament election, contains 38 actions needed to combat mental health in Scotland, aimed at influencing those in power to take action. The fundraising partnership between Van Gogh Alive and SAMH will raise money that will go towards helping the charity take forward its strategy for 2021-24 called We Won't Wait; one of the key tenets of which is putting the voices and views of people who are affected by mental health problems at the heart of the charity's approach.
