The Alma Project aims to improve the mental health and well-being of the inhabitants of 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 Alma Project was set up as a constituted community group by service users and their supporters on 5th December 2010 and became a Scottish Charity Incorporated Organisation on 12 Nov. 2015. SC046127
