Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent Mind

Aims and objectives

Torfaen Mind aims to support and inform people living in Torfaen who:
• Experience mental health problems;
• Carers for such people; and
• Anyone with an interest in mental health issues.

As far as is possible it seeks to respond to locally identified needs.

Torfaen Mind aims to:
• See the individual, not the diagnosis;
• Listen;
• Give appropriate levels of support;
• Empower, not overwhelm.

The Charity’s objects (the Objects) as defined in our Memorandum and Articles of Association are;

‘To promote the preservation of mental health and to assist in relieving and rehabilitating persons suffering from mental disorder or conditions of emotional or mental distress requiring advice or treatment, in association with MIND and in accordance with the aims and objectives of MIND’.

While valuing its independent status, Torfaen Mind aims to liaise closely with other agencies, in order to be able to respond to client’s needs in a comprehensive way, to offer an alternative approach, a complementary not competitive service.
