About Us

Saheliya works in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other parts of Scotland to support the mental health and well-being of women (12+) experiencing racial inequality. This includes asylum seeking and refugee women.

We believe that there are a number of factors in the lives of our client group which can contribute to stress, anxiety and depression. Some of these factors are:

  • Social isolation
  • Racism
  • Unemployment
  • Abuse
  • Ill health
  • Bereavement
  • Relationship issues

We aim to develop our clients’ self-esteem and confidence and reduce barriers such as isolation and depression, by using a holistic range of services including counselling, practical support, befriending, complementary therapies, outreach, group work and Young Saheliya.
