We are now Change Mental Health
In our 50th year of delivering care and support to people affected by mental illness across Scotland, we have launched a new brand and website, and a refreshed, mission and values. Today, Support in Mind Scotland becomes Change Mental Health.
Our fresh and dynamic brand comes as part of a push to be more public facing and accessible to better reach people affected by mental illness. By including the phrase ‘mental health’, it has removed the need for a strapline and lowers barriers to people who don’t necessarily identify with mental illness.
With Change Mental Health, we’re meeting our ambitions of breaking down barriers, supporting more people and providing transformational services in more parts of the country. We’re building a future where no one needs to face mental illness alone.
Our mission remains the same: making sure people have the support they need, when they need it and in a way which works best for them. Person-centred approaches have been at the forefront of the charity since we started 50 years ago and we have a significant footprint in delivering support to communities across Scotland, including Highlands, Edinburgh, Tayside, Fife, and Dumfries & Galloway.

Nick Ward, CEO for Change Mental Health, says:
“We have grown so much over the past number of years and so have our ambitions to support more people in more parts of the country. With this new identity, we want to pay homage to our past and represent the different types of support we can offer along with the tapestry of different people we work with.
“The name Change Mental Health is a call to arms. We want to see changes in mental health support and provision for everyone and we want to change society by changing attitudes, fighting stigma and influencing government. Ultimately Change Mental Health wants to build a future where no one needs to face mental illness alone.”
