SACMHA Health & Social Care
- In person & remote
- Adults (over 18)
SACMHA Health & Social Care is a charity that was set up in 1988 in response to the mental health needs of people of African or Caribbean descent. They now support anyone from any BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) background. They offer health and social care support to people in need of assistance due their age, youth, disability, financial hardship or social disadvantage.
SACMHA aims to provide a range of culturally appropriate services to anyone over the age of 18. People can self refer, or can be referred by a friend, relative or other healthcare professional.

They offer regular services including:
A supported living service in the form of self-contained wellbeing flats for adults with lived experience of mental health diagnosis and for the elderly.
Self-Directed Support is when you control the money that you receive for support and get to decide how to spend it. SACMHA can support you to do this.
Counselling Referral Service
SACMHA’s Counselling Referral Service partners with a group of trained counsellors and a trainee counsellor. There are a limited number of free sessions on offer.
SACMHA provide support for carers, including helping them to schedule breaks and have their needs assessed.
The Community Mental Health Advocacy Service enables you to get support from another person to help you express your views and wishes, and help you stand up for your rights.
SACMHA Health and Social Care also have a number of volunteering opportunities.
