iMind Donors, Making an ongoing difference
Mind works with people experiencing serious mental illness, their families and carers and stands beside them when they need it most. The staff at Mind provide practical and emotional support to people so they can take control of their lives, foster self-belief and develop the skills to face life’s challenges and opportunities. This may include learning to control symptoms, getting back to school or work, participating in social activities, developing trusting relationships and reconnecting with family and friends.
