Mental Health Aberdeen is a charity, local to Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire providing support services, counselling and advice to adults, young people and children affected by challenges related to mental health and wellbeing.
Mental Health Aberdeen is made up of a network of about 150 people. This is broken up into around 50 members of staff, and 100 volunteers, each working hard to run their projects and offer care advice and support to those affected by mental ill-health. At present, their projects are spread across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire with many facilities specialising in their own type of care and support. This ranges from Counselling and information services, to befriending, support for carers and day services for those suffering from mental ill-health. Their services support and promote individuals as they work towards their goals, achieving things like recovery, increased social inclusion, or reintegration into society.
MHA’s services rely upon and greatly value our dedicated group of volunteers that enable us to provide the high level of service provision currently on offer. The charity funds training and support, as well as out of pocket expenses in return for our volunteers valuable time, expertise and dedication.
