About this Resource:

Our vision and impact

Our vision is for equality, rights, the fair treatment and maximum quality of life for all those affected by mental illness, their carers, family and friends. As one of the largest charitable providers of services for people living with mental illness, we are well placed to make a direct impact on the care people receive.

But we have a much larger vision too – to transform at every level the way our nation approaches mental illness. Every year, our diverse range of information and support helps tens of thousands of people get through crises, live independently and feel that they do not have to face mental illness alone.

Our services and groups

We know that if people don’t receive the right support, mental illness can destroy their lives. We recognise gaps in service provision and respond to these by developing and delivering services that provide high-quality care and support to people severely affected by mental illness.

Our services keep people living with mental illness safe and well in the community, prevent their needs from escalating, and help them live independently, access the information, support and care they are entitled to, and understand and exercise their rights.

Our aim is to deliver a better life for people severely affected by mental illness. We do this by not only meeting their mental health needs but also helping them to improve their physical health, take control of their lives and establish a sense of belonging to their community. 98% of people who use our services said they got the right level of support from us and 97% felt supported in achieving their goals.
