Yesterday, Monday 01 August 2022, saw the launch of Local Minds Week, a celebration of Mind charities across the country.
What is a local Mind?
We’re part of a network that supports the mental health of communities in almost every part of England and Wales – the Mind network.
In communities across Mid and North East Essex, we provide mental health services to thousands of people each year as your local Mind – and as we’re local we understand our communities, so provide services that local people need.
We’re an independent charity, which means we raise our own funds, while our board is responsible for how we’re run.
There are over 100 local Minds across England, Wales and the Channel Islands. Last year, these independent, local Mind charities supported over 403,000 people. We are proud to be one of them!
Together, local Minds are part of the Mind family. We share knowledge and ideas, and nationally, Mind supports our work.
Together we’re fighting for better mental health.
