Geographical remit: 


Edamh's core purpose is to promote the rights and seek to enhance the lifestyles of those affected by mental ill health throughout East Dunbartonshire through the provision of easily accessible community based services.


Edamh currently operates a Day Care Network providing adults with mild, moderate and severe mental ill health with individual focussed support in their own homes,at the Association's premises in Milngavie and at community venues throughout East Dunbartonshire.The main service adopts a personal recovery based model-WRAP or Wellness Recovery Action Planning,which supports clients by helping them define and choose their own recovery and help them on that path with emotional and practical support. Aspects of our service include a Vocation, Education and Employment support service which helps clients become vocationally productive or gain work experience, access jobs or training.Edamh also has a long history of providing mental health support to women affected by violence or abuse through a Violence Against Women Project,formerly funded by the Scottish Government.In addition,Edamh hosts a Cedar Project (Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery) which provides a specific service to support children,young people and their mothers using therapeutic group work to help them recover from their experience of domestic violence.Both these projects are currently funded by The Big Lottery Community Fund.Edamh also provides a service for men using an approach more geared towards men's needs and issues.Other aspects of our service include peer support groups,supporting clients into housing and assistance with welfare issues and disability benefits. As a voluntary organisation we are always considering new ways to deliver services that will assist individuals in their mental health recovery and are open to new ideas.
