Sam's is united in it's difference from other support opportunities in the community. The team at Sam's are employed, professionally registered peer workers who use a framework and ethos to offer support with attendees.

The team are employed by the Scottish Association for Mental Health, a Scottish wide charity offering mental health support with the communities of Scotland. 

We work with people across the whole spectrum of mental health and offer support with suicidal thoughts. We have training and development to support people through suicide prevention inclusive of safe planning. We have frameworks and policies in place to safeguard people.

We can offer support with family, carers and friends. We fully recognise that Sam's can offer a holistic resource for everyone connected with someone experiencing mental health issues, as it does have an impact on other people's mental wellbeing as well.
