[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Local mental health charity RAMH today celebrated 25 years of providing services to local communities across Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire.

And they kicked off their special year by launching an appeal to raise £25,000 in their 25th anniversary year, allowing them to move to better premises, where they will be more accessible, more visible and able to bring all their services into one central hub.

Chief Executive, Stephen McLellan said “From a small group of mental health professionals cautiously establishing services in 1990, RAMH has blossomed into one of the largest providers of mental health services in Scotland.”

He added “I continue to be immensely proud of the crucial mental health services RAMH provides. Celebrate with me as we applaud our achievements in 2015, and let’s make this the biggest and best year yet.”

The celebrations were attended by Renfrewshire Provost Anne Hall, who has selected RAMH as one of her four nominated charities. St Mirren’s Brian Caldwell also attended as did other local names, including ProLife Fitness Centre and Hillington based building firm Pacific Building.

RAMH was formerly the Renfrewshire Association for Mental Health, but is now known as just RAMH because it provides services across Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, South Ayrshire and West Dunbartonshire, making it the largest provider of mental health services in the West of Scotland.

RAMH enables people to recover from mental ill health, and to build independent, fulfilled lives. Every single day of the year they provide crisis support, individualised care & practical support at home, day services, counselling for young people and adults, support for carers, and awareness to overcome mental health misconceptions.
