Saheliya is a specialist mental health and well-being support organisation for black and minority ethnic (BME) women and girls (12+) in Scotland. It promotes positive mental health, develops women's confidence and self esteem and reduces barriers such as isolation and depression. Saheliya believes that, like physical health, the mental health of black and minority ethnic women can be affected by a number of factors leading to stress, anxiety and depression.
Our staff are from a variety of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds and we all have an understanding of how race, gender and culture affects the mental well-being of black and minority ethnic women and girls.
We provide counselling, complementary therapies, practical and emotional support, youth and group work. We deliver a wide range of learning activities to support resilience, recovery, employment and integration. We have childcare for under 7′s. We work closely with mainstream agencies to help make their services more accessible for our service users.
