We share our vision with that of national Mind:
‘We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect’.
Our Core Purpose
We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. Our core purpose is reviewed regularly as part of our overall business planning process, involving trustees, staff and service users in making sure our direction is the right one.
Supporting our core purpose are our values, the ethical framework within which we operate as an organisation. Our values are at the heart of everything we do:
Open – we reach out to anyone who needs us;
Together – we’re stronger in partnership;
Responsive – we listen; we act;
Independent – we speak out fearlessly;
Unstoppable -we never give up.
