Mind Jersey
 

Description

People who experience mental health illness are at the heart of what we do.

We aim to:

  • Campaign to change public attitudes, reduce stigma and misunderstanding.
  • Influence government policy and improve practice towards people with mental illness.
  • Provide support and help so that people can take control of their mental health and live full lives.
  • Make lives better for their families and friends.
  • Promote greater ‘User involvement’ in shaping services and feeding back to service providers.

 We provide a number of specialist services including:

  • A Family and Carers’ Support Service that seeks to promote the voice of carers and ensure that they are taken seriously.
  • A fully staffed, round the clock registered residential home that provides a safe and family orientated base for up to eight residents.
  • Five Independent accommodation units where we act as an ‘understanding landlord’. 
  • A Peer Support Service that provides one to one support to those living with mental health illness by those with lived experience.

We believe it to be of fundamental importance that we empower people to do things for themselves, rather than to do things for or to them and that they are listened to and heard.

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Rates of depression and anxiety are increasing. In any given year 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem. It can affect anyone, of any age and will be affecting someone you know. 

Donations and the proceeds of fundraising events are always gratefully received and acknowledged – all money raised in Jersey remain in Jersey. Payments can be made direct to our offices or by accessing our ‘Just Giving’ page at www.justgiving.com/mindj
