We all have mental health and mental health problems are a part of life. Our services find positive ways to make people feel valued and live well. We support our service users to live safe, purposeful and fulfilled lives in their communities. We believe in their recovery and we are hopeful about their future.

We bring focused mental health expertise to our partnerships and the services we provide. We value working in partnership. In Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire we know that bringing together different perspectives can help identify solutions to complex problems.

We support people in Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire so they can be open about who they are, without worrying about discrimination, knowing they will be accepted.

We are an independent charity that is proud to be affiliated with national Mind and to adhere to its quality standards of governance and service delivery. Buckinghamshire Mind is part of a network of over 100 Local Minds, which provide trusted mental health services to our communities.

Our Vision

Working with national Mind, we will not give up until everyone in Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire with a mental health problem gets both support and respect.

Our Mission

We deliver high quality community based services in Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire to reach out and ensure everyone with a mental health problem gets access to the help they need.

Equality and Diversity

We are working to make sure that everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve. We want to make sure our services, projects and processes include a focus on diverse and/or marginalised communities. We are working to align mental health support with the challenges that ethnic groups and other marginalised communities face in a way that’s authentic and engages with the entirety of their lived experience.

We accept that delivering on these equality aims involves fundamental change within Buckinghamshire Mind, addressing disparity internally to enable us to deliver on these ambitions.

We know there is much to do and this is an ongoing process, but we are committed to ensuring equality and diversity throughout our organisation. If you have any suggestions or would like to be involved in this process, please contact info@bucksmind.org.uk
