What we do

Our services. We are currently developing services where we can add value by working together. Examples include:  

  • Trauma-informed bereavement support.
  • NHS frontline staff support.
  • Social prescribing support.
  • Employment support.

Our campaigns. We support all Londoners on the big issues we know are important. We have identified several policy priorities that we are campaigning on. We are therefore calling for the following:

  • Proper care to be provided in the right place and at the right time
  • Modernisation of the Mental Health Act
  • Addressing of the growing crisis in young people’s mental health
  • A benefits system that works for people with mental health problems
  • Promotion and protection of mental health in the workplace
  • Mental health being at the heart of these policies

 

Why we work together

We are the voice of mental health in London. Together, we give a stronger voice to Londoners living with mental health problems, challenge stigma and inequalities, and deliver real change.

We are mental health specialists with grassroots connections; we can build on our local knowledge to deliver a vision for London led by lived experience by taking a pan London approach.

Our combined expertise allows us to reach more Londoners with quality services that are accessible wherever they live.

We work in partnership to support innovation to deliver more together than we could as individual organisations.

Our values

  • Inclusive – with focus and openness, we will reach out to all of London’s diverse communities.
  • Partnership – we share learning, best practice and connections with transparency and honesty.
  • Influence  together, we speak out to challenge stigma and deliver change.
  • User-led – our service users and people with lived experience are at the heart of everything we do.

“Local Minds across London have been working together and supporting each other for many years, but in recent times our collaboration has become stronger. Inspired by the potential that working together across the capital brings, we have ​begun to see the strength of our collective influence ​as well as opportunities ​to respond to the mental health needs of Londoners that goes far beyond what we can do as local charities.”
