Provost Anne Hall’s daredevil efforts in aid of good causes are well known in the community so it came as no surprise to learn her next challenge will be a skydive. Speaking at an event to kick start the RAMH’s appeal to raise £25,000 this year, Provost Hall challenged RAMH chief executive Stephen McLellan to take the plunge and join her – Stephen’s face was a picture as he revealed he is deathly afraid of heights! I’m with Stephen on this one, there is no way I would tackle some of the dangerous feats which the Provost undertakes for charity. This year marks the RAMH’s silver anniversary and the charity is keen to raise £25,000 to mark the event and help ensure it can continue providing services for another 25 years. Previously known as the Renfrewshire Association for Mental Health, the organisation now provides services further afield and is known simply as ‘RAMH’. The charity helps people to recover from mental health issues and to build independent fulfilled lives.  Crisis support, individual care and practical support at home, day services, counselling and raising awareness to overcome mental health misconceptions are just some of the ways RAMH helps those in Renfrewshire suffering from mental health related issues.
