About us as a charity
Birchwood Highland was established over 25 years ago as a charity working with people with mental ill-health. Whilst we’ve retained our expertise in supporting people with mental ill health, today we focus on improving the quality of a person’s life experiences, whatever their background.
We recently were nominated as finalists in the Scottish Charity Awards 2015 run by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) in the award category – Charity of the Year and were a contender for the People’s Choice – Heart & Soul Award. Thank you to everyone who voted for us and supported us. It was an amazing achievement for a Highland charity focused on mental health to have made it to the finals out of 45,000 Scottish voluntary organisations and charities.
Throw your own Mad Hatter's Tea Party in aid of mental health and Birchwood Highland! This Halloween, we're looking for workplaces, clubs, and groups of friends to get together, have a great time, talk about mental health, and raise funds to support us in the work we do to support people in the Highlands.
If you'd like to get involved, contact us for a fundraising pack.
