Poor mental health can have the most profound impact on our relationships, our work, our wellbeing and our quality of life. That’s why it is so important that SAMH is able to offer information, support and help to people across Scotland.

Thank you to everyone at Bruce Stevenson, we are really looking forward to a fantastic year of fundraising and awareness raising! Working together we will make a difference for Scotland’s mental health.”

“I’m delighted that Bruce Stevenson has partnered with the SAMH for 2020. Mental health and mindfulness is something that’s very important to our company and a subject that many of our colleagues hold dear. It was very pleasing for me that so many of our staff voted to choose SAMH as our Charity of Choice for this year.

SAMH is a highly respected organisation and the important work they perform improves the lives of people across the country. Their work raises our awareness of the importance of mental health and what we can all do to improve it in our own lives and the lives of each other.  
Now I’m looking forward to seeing our team, across the country, engage with SAMH throughout the year ahead. We will be looking to support SAMH in every way we can.”
