In partnership to promote Equality & Diversity
All the activities aimed at achieving our strategic goal "removing inequality of opportunity" are developed in partnership with local groups and co-produced with people who experience mental health and other forms of discrimination (including but not limited to ethnicity, sexuality, age, gender, disability, religion and beliefs)
In this way we can make sure the needs and expectations of marginalised communities drive our projects and allow us to effectively design culturally appropriate services.
In addition, we constantly strive to engage with community organisations throughout the country in a meaningful way to develop best practice in engaging with and meeting the needs of diverse communities
This is based on a recognition that, given the inequality across the mental health system, particularly the over-representation of certain minority ethnic groups sectioned under the mental health act, such issues are part of the core business of a national mental health charity like Mind. For this reason Mind has made addressing these issues central to the organisational strategy.
