Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. We work to achieve a better quality of life for those experiencing mental distress and are committed to challenging and tackling the stigma and misinformation that exists in the wider community around mental health.
Why are we here?
Stigma and discrimination still have a huge impact on people’s lives. Almost 9 out of 10 people affected by mental health problems have experienced discrimination; some even feel that the effects of stigma and discrimination are worse than the symptoms of the illness itself. Stigma can cost people their job, relationships, housing and many opportunities in life.
