Listening to our Young People

We are excited to announce the launch of our first ever Youth Advisory Board. We know how important it is to listen to and learn from young people and this new Board will ensure that their voices are heard and are at the heart of decision making in FDAMH.

We will be looking to recruit around eight caring and enthusiastic young people who are passionate about mental health. Recruitment will start at the beginning of 2022 with more information on the recruitment process becoming available soon.

Stay tuned for more! In the meantime, if you are interested in joining the Youth Advisory Board, please register your interest.

Join us on social on our birthday

The 16th of June is our ‘formal’ 40th birthday! Services will be closed so that all of the team can join in with our day of events.

Celebrations at FDAMH will be low key due to the pandemic, but the good news is we’re celebrating our 40th all year and hope to organise an in-person celebration after restrictions are lifted – so you can share some birthday cake with us then!

In the meantime, please follow our social media channels on the 16th June, we will be sharing our celebrations including the dedication of our Activity Room in memory of Joyce Cottle, who was the driving force behind the creation of FDAMH all those years ago.

Our staff will be out and about on a fundraising challenge and looking for your support and we’ll be sharing some lovely birthday messages from some well-known faces!

We really hope our day will raise community awareness of FDAMH and the support available to people and families struggling with mental health issues – so please do share our posts on social media!

A big thank you to the organisations that are supporting our various birthday schemes including MacDonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa, Marshalls Family Bakers, Bonnyview Nursery, Gartinny Nursery, Bellsdyke Hospital Horticultural Unit, Morrisons and Asda!
