The new logo incorporates the celtic symbol of inner strength to show the importance of self belief in the recovery journey. It is accompanied by an updated website which includes an A-Z of mental health and information on how to access local services.

Chief Executive, Stephen McLellan, said “We’re delighted with the new look of RAMH and hope it will encourage more people to talk openly about mental health.

“We know that positive relationships and connectedness are key to recovery and sustained mental health. Being more visible, more accessible and clearer about who we are and what we do will ultimately mean we can help more people.”

The charity say every one in four people experience mental ill health each year. RAMH helps over 5,000 local people by providing support for all mental health diagnosis from depression to self-harm, bipolar disorder to anxiety issues.

Stephen added “We’re inviting everyone to visit the new Johnstone shop for a browse and to pick up great bargains. Plus we’re asking everyone to visit the new website and take a look at the information on offer.

“Mental health affects almost all of us at some point, be it a personal experience or someone close to us. The RAMH website has all sorts of information for everyone.”

The RAMH shop in Johnstone is close to the Town Hall and is now open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1.30-4.30pm with a wide selection of good quality and affordable furniture, white goods, clothing, vintage and collectibles.
