We are Mind in London. A partnership of 18 local Minds working across London's boroughs to support people to live well, feel valued and fulfilled.
We believe everyone has the right to live happily and healthily - we stand together to make sure every Londoner experiencing mental health problems gets support and respect.
Our manifesto for the Mayor of London and Assembly elections in May, sets out five priority areas with actions that the Mayor needs to take to address the mental health emergency facing Londoners as a result of the pandemic. Read the manifesto.
Are you passionate about representing people’s mental health needs in London/your community? Would you like to be part of an advisory group for our partnership of local Minds across the capital? We are currently recruiting for 15 people to form a new group that can help influence decisions about services and policies that impact on those of us who experience mental health problems. The role description provides more information about the group, what we require from members and the support we will provide.
Our services. We are currently developing a number of services where we can add value by working together. Examples include:
Our campaigns. We support all Londoners on the big issues we know are important. We have identified a number of policy priorities that we are campaigning on. We are therefore calling for the following:
We are the voice of mental health in London. Together we give a stronger voice to Londoners living with mental health problems, to challenge stigma and inequalities and to deliver real change.
We are mental health specialists with grassroots connections; by taking a pan London approach we can build on our local knowledge to deliver a vision for London that is led by lived experience.
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 so we can deliver more together than we could as individual organisations.
“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.”
