A BIG thank you to everyone who supported our recent Quiz Night and Craft Fayre. In total we raised a wonderful £510.00! These much needed funds will help us to provide the services that are crucial to our current and future users.
On 15th January 2015, South Somerset Mind will be celebrating it's 30th Anniversary.
From little acorns……. South Somerset certainly grew. Established in 1985, South Somerset Mind celebrates its 30th anniversary today. The services we provide to our local communities have grown and diversified over the years and we continue to strive to help young people, adults and their families and carers to access support and take care of themselves too.
1 in 4 British adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year
... and we are here to help.
As many as 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives.
Nearly two thirds (61%) of the population know someone close to them who has experience of mental ill-health.
It is estimated that mental health problems cost employers £26 billion a year.
It is possible to recover completely from mental distress and many do. Of those experiencing mental ill health, 70-80% will go on to make a full recovery.
South Somerset Mind was founded in 1985 by people with direct experience of mental health issues to offer help, support, information and activities to those affected by mental health problems in the local community.
Mental health encompasses feeling lonely, anxious, sad or depressed. If you want someone to talk to we have an open access day every Wednesday from 9.30am until 3.30pm. You’ll be met
by a volunteer and given a friendly welcome. Refreshments are available at a
reasonable cost. We understand you and can offer a listening ear. We can provide
information about our services and leaflets to help you choose your way forward.
We are here to help you.
