The Alma Project aims to improve the mental health and well-being of the inhabitants of the Edinburgh and Lothians through the use of the arts as a therapeutic tool.
We provide quality, arts groups to people with mental health issues.
We are involved in many public exhibitions, performances and workshops that give mental well-being a platform, and help to educate about mental ill health.
The name ‘Alma’ was chosen as it means ‘soul’ in Latin. We see the arts as being ‘food for the soul’ – health for mind and spirit.
Our long term outcomes are to improve mental health, increase quality of life, to reduce mental illness and suicide, to eradicate any stigma associated with mental ill health.
