PERTH ASSOCIATION FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Caladh Centre, 6 Milne Street, Perth, PH1 5QL
PAMH is a community based voluntary organisation committed to supporting and promoting the mental wellbeing of people in the Perth and Kinross area.
We are funded by NHS Tayside, Perth & Kinross Council, the Scottish Government, and charitable grants/ donations.
Margaret Lamond founded PAMH in 1981. She had recognised the value of a self help group for people recovering from mental illness to meet for mutual support. The first meetings were held in her house and as the numbers attending grew, meetings took place in a range of different temporary locations. Late in 1989 the organisation moved to its current premises, the Caladh Centre; Caladh being Gaelic for Haven.
PAMH’s objective is to promote mental wellbeing in a safe, supportive and person centred environment.
PAMH supports professional training by providing supervised practical placements for those on Counselling, Social Work and Social Care training courses.
The Caladh Centre is also used as a venue for a range of community groups. The centre or Counselling/ meeting rooms can be booked by contacting us on 01738 639657.
