We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. That’s why we are here for you. Today. Now. We’re on your doorstep and on the end of a phone. Whether you’re stressed, depressed or in crisis, we’ll listen, give you support and advice and we’ll push for a better deal and respect for everyone experiencing a mental health problem.
We work with children from the age of 5 and adults of all ages. Some people use our services for only a little while and others might need help for longer.
Mid and North East Essex Mind are a local, independent charity connected to the national charity Mind. There are 130 local Minds across England and Wales. We all have to raise our own money to run our services so we each have our own board of trustees who are responsible for how we are run. Our work takes place across the Braintree, Chelmsford, Colchester, Maldon and Tendring districts. Because we are local, we understand our community, therefore our services fit what people need most.
Our mission is to support and empower people experiencing an emotional or mental health condition by building on their personal hopes and aspirations. This is achieved by identifying and responding to community needs in order to deliver an effective and efficient system of community based services.
