As the leading mental health charity for England and Wales, Mind is a force for change.
They campaign vigorously to create a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all - a society where people with experience of mental distress are treated fairly, positively and with respect.
They are both a local and national network. Through this network they work with around 250,000 people every year. They are able to help people who experience all types of mental distress, and who may require help from one or more of their services.
People who experience mental distress are always at the very heart of their work. They listen and make sure your voices are heard by those who influence change. They demand higher standards in mental health care and challenge discrimination wherever it occurs.
With one in four people likely to experience a mental health problem every year it is critical that Mind raises awareness and promotes good mental health for the benefit of all members of society.
