East Dunbartonshire Association for Mental Health (EDAMH) is a third sector organisation that provides a range of support services for people affected by and recovering from mental ill health.
Who are our services for?
We can support individuals from age 18 upwards who live within the boundaries of East Dunbartonshire. Our primary focus of support is with people experiencing functional mental health problems e.g. anxiety, depression, psychosis. Our remit does not allow us to work with people with current drug or alcohol issues, brain injury or a learning disability. Our support is mainly one to one and recovery-focused for a maximum of 6 months. We do not operate a counselling service.
How to refer
EDAMH operates an open referral system and you do not need a clinical diagnosis to be referred to our services. You can request a referral form by telephoning us on 0141 955 3040 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The completed referral form should be returned to our office by post or email. We are always happy to discuss potential referrals over the phone.
Our response to your referral
Once a referral is made we aim to see you for an initial assessment usually within 2-3 weeks to gain further information and determine whether our services will meet your needs and how best we can support you. The assessment would be carried out at the your home or at a place where you feel most comfortable. If our service is appropriate for you, we will confirm this by letter and you will be allocated a support worker as soon as possible thereafter.
