Mind in Furness

Our vision is to work proactively and in partnership with statutory and other organisations and individuals:
• to promote mental health and to improve the quality of life for people suffering from, or with the potential to suffer from, mental distress by providing and encouraging user-led activities and services and
• to increase awareness of those issues through education and a strong, positive presence in the local community.

Mind in Furness seeks, in a number of ways, to combat the social exclusion of people with mental health problems by:

• Fighting stigma and discrimination.
• Demonstrating that it is possible to have high expectations of people with mental health problems.
• Promoting vocational and social outcomes for our members.
• Providing people with ongoing support to achieve their own goals.
• Helping people to engage with all aspects of the wider community.
• Consulting and involving service users at every stage of service provision.
