For 26 years Saheliya (from the Sanskrit meaning ‘women friends’) has been providing mental health and
well-being support for women and girls from black, minority ethnic, asylum seeker, refugee and migrant communities in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other parts of Scotland.

We promote sustainable well-being by combating the effects of discrimination and abuse, reducing the stigma of mental health problems, and improving access to mainstream services and to justice. We do this by using a holistic wrap-around services such as counselling, practical support, complementary therapies, accredited and informal learning opportunities as well as youth work and gardening.

Last year we have worked with 1180 women from 58 countries at our safe, women only hubs.
