for better mental health

Our strategy

Mind's 2016-21 strategy is called 'Building on change'.

It's the next stage in our journey towards our ultimate ambition of support and respect for everyone with a mental health problem.

On reflection

Since launching our previous strategy in 2012 we've seen some significant changes in mental health. In just four years, public attitudes are improving, support is growing and mental health is high on the political agenda.

Because of Mind, millions more people have access to advice and support thanks to our information and services nationally and locally, in England and Wales. We're building on change, but we know there is much more to do.

People need Mind more than ever

Too many people still don't have the things they need and deserve to stay well. And, that's not good enough.







Working in partnership

Our new strategy has been created in partnership with people with experience of mental health problems – people's experiences are the heart of everything we do.

We'll deliver our plan in partnership with our local Mind network. Our local Minds are experts in delivering services that recognise and respond to the needs of their community.

Looking forward

Between 2016 and 2021 we're building on change by working in the following ways.







Being there for everyone who needs us

By following our strategy, together with our local Minds, we'll be there for everyone who needs us - wherever, whoever, whatever it takes.
