Recipient Org: Description Mind in West Essex supports people affected by mental ill health, predominantly across West Essex to make positive changes in their lives and to improve their emotional resilience. We also aim to normalise the conversation around mental health and in doing so reduce the stigma that can be a barrier to people accessing the support that could help them to improve their quality of life. We provide a range of services in order to help us deliver on these aims, these include: counselling as part of the NHS psychological therapies service; a private counselling service that provides a wide range of therapeutic interventions and Life Management skills; Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training; emotional resilience training; peer support; befriending to reduce isolation; bereavement work and community support. In addition to the above client facing services we also run a Mental Health Referral Triage service on behalf of West Essex CCG. This service processes all GP mental health referrals across West Essex and passes them on to the relevant provider. We have an active presence on social media platforms as part of our efforts to normalise mental health and engage with the public in a way that is accessible to a wide range of people. We are also actively engaged with the Time to Change Movement, particularly through engagement with local employers. We aspire to ensure that the following values can be clearly visible throughout our organisation: Welcoming: to everyone who comes into contact with any part of our organisation. Open: to all forms of feedback and open to change. Inclusive: everyone who is part of our organisation feels included and involved. Informed: We listen to what people are telling us and keep up to date with information about best practice. Responsive: We strive to be responsive to the changing needs of the population of West Essex and to the changing requirements of those who commission services from us. Effective: everyone who receives a service from us is helped to move forward on their journey towards mental wellbeing. Giving people the skills and techniques to deal with these issues again in the future.
