Mental Health Matters is a national organisation providing a range of support and advice services, ranging from drop-in support groups and helplines to talking therapies/CBT and supported housing. We provide support to thousands of people every year, and we aim to enable each individual to recover and/or move towards greater independence and well-being. MHM also seeks to strengthen the voice, rights and independence of our users, their carers and their friends and families and to challenge the stigmas and negative attitudes that are still associated with mental ill-health.

Priory understands that mental health conditions and addictions can have a huge effect on the people experiencing them. Along with the day-to-day struggles that they bring, they can prevent people from achieving their best at work, and also affect their families, friends and loved ones.
Priory offers the best available option for high quality mental health and addiction treatment. Every year our private services support over 10,000 people, and our proven track record in helping people to get their lives back on track, is unrivaled. Each individual in our care receives an expert assessment to establish the best treatment for them. This is based on the experience of our clinicians, the proven effectiveness of different treatments, and the individual’s preferences. Priory’s expert team includes the best consultants and therapists in the mental health field.
We have a nationwide network of hospitals and wellbeing centres offering outpatient, day care and inpatient support for a wide range of conditions. We consistently deliver the excellent results that Priory has become known for.
Around since 1923, SAMH currently operates over 60 services in communities across Scotland providing mental health social care support, homelessness, addictions and employment services, among others.
SAMH is privileged to have had the support of Britain’s most celebrated Olympian, Sir Chris Hoy, since 2009.
In that time Sir Chris has devoted many hours to raising awareness of and funds for SAMH and the mental health cause.
In 2010 Sir Chris came to Celtic Park to launch our work in sport and physical activity. Our Get Active programme began in earnest and in the first phase went on to support hundreds of people to be active for their mental health.
Mental health is an issue for all of us and talking about it should be as easy as talking about our physical health. I’m proud to be SAMH’s Ambassador for mental health and well-being.
