Over the last few years we've come a long way. But there's still more to be done. The focus of our new strategy is on supporting the people disproportionately affected by mental health issues. People from racialised communities, young people, and people living in poverty.
Find out more about our strategy and what it means for our work on this page.
We bring people together to make change in their communities.
We deliver life changing support.
We speak out and demand better from policy makers and the public.
We work together to become a more inclusive and effective federation.
Our mental health system is stacked against people from racialised communities. They're more likely to experience a mental health problem but less likely to receive the help they need.
We're determined to fight for better mental health for everyone – and to do that we must step up our fight against racism.
The pandemic has sped up a crisis in young people's mental health that was already growing fast.
Our ambition is to become an influential advocate for young people's rights and ensure our work is led by young people.
We know that by working together with young people, we can confront this crisis.
People with mental health problems are more likely to end up in poverty. And people who live in poverty are more likely to have mental health problems.
This two-way link between mental health and poverty must be broken down.
Mental health is not hidden anymore; it’s on the front pages; it’s on the political agenda; it’s spoken about by royalty. For millions of people, mental health is now something to be honest about – not ashamed of.
The Mind community have been at the heart of this transformation. Together, we’ve shown what mental health really looks like, what support makes it better, and what needs to change.
