Mind in Camden is an independent charity affiliated to national Mind. We exist to:
- work for, promote and provide for the well-being, interests and rights of people who have mental ill health
- work for and promote the preservation and safeguarding of good mental health
We currently provide Day Services, Counselling, a Minor Tranquilliser service and a London-wide capacity building service that promotes and sustains self-help groups for people who hear voices of have other unusual sensory perceptions.
How we look at mental health
We seek to combat the isolation, low self-esteem and stigma that labels and diagnosis can cause, by recognising and valuing people’s own experiences and definitions of their mental health. We believe that recovery is self defined.
How we treat people
We treat people as individuals, promoting respect, dignity and recognising that people are not just recipients of services, but can add value both as service users and volunteers.
How we provide services
We promote well being by providing solution-focused services that support individual responsibility, independence, interdependence and inclusion in the wider community. We seek to constantly improve the services we and others provide by learning, training and sharing.
How we include people
We promote and respect cultural and personal understanding and diversity. We value partnership, not just with organisations, but with individuals that use, fund and provide our services.
We acknowledge and manage effectively the resulting fluidity between roles within the organisation, e.g. between the service users, volunteers and/or employees. We give people the opportunity to have a say in managing and running our projects.
