Our vision

Is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all, and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively, and with respect. We are working to:

  • Change society: Mind influences and changes public attitudes, government policy and practice towards
  • Provide support: Mind helps people to take control over their mental health
  • Give people a voice: We will champion the right of people with direct experience of mental distress to have a voice and be heard
  • Create mentally healthy communities: Mind works with the local Mind association network and other partners to improve the delivery of services for people experiencing mental distress

What we do

Our extensive range of services are friendly, confidential and aim to support individuals in their own recovery. These include:

  • A Community Wellbeing Service offered at three sites – Harrow Lodge, Rainham and Albemarle – where “meaningful day-time activities” promote “social inclusion” and “recovery”
  • Clients support at either at informal ‘Open Sessions’; structured (usually three-month) ‘Focused Sessions’ which provide access to a range of courses, activities and opportunities; or Reviews which offer clients one-to-one planning time for their own progress
  • Weekly activities and courses which typically include Men’s and Women’s Support groups, horticulture, arts and crafts, IT and creative writing
  • Other services such as the Referral, Enablement and Pathway Service (REPS); the Doves project (for people over 65 years); and a befriending scheme
