Mind's Mission  

Our vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all, and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively, and with respect.

The needs and experiences of people with mental distress drive our work and we make sure their voice is heard by those who influence change

Our independence gives us the freedom to stand up and speak out on the real issues that affect daily lives.

We provide information and support, campaign to improve policy and attitudes and, in partnership with independent local Mind associations, develop local services.

We do all this to make it possible for people who experience mental distress to live full lives, and play their full part in society.

Informed - People with experience of mental distress drive all we do

Diversity - We respect everyone's experience and ensure inclusion is at the heart of our work

Partnership - We are committed to working with our networks and all who will help us achieve our mission

Integrity - Our independence ensures our integrity - we are never compromised

Determined - We will never give up challenging discrimination and campaigning for better mental health
