Important Mind Survey - Please help

We want to know what you think of your local Mind and the services and support it provides. This will help us to know what it does well and how it could be improved.

We have asked a research charity called The McPin Foundation to carry out this survey and write a report to tell us the results. Only the McPin Foundation researchers will see your answers. Your local Mind will get a summary of the results which might include an anonymous quote from what you write here. Your local Mind will not know who said what. You do not need to write your name on this questionnaire.

If you have any questions, you can ask to speak with your local Mind ’survey champion’ or a member of staff. Survey champions are local Mind users or volunteers. Alternatively you can contact the McPin researchers at laurahemming@mcpin.org.

There are 5 sections to the survey. Only answer the questions you feel comfortable with. The more questions you answer, the more you can help us to make our services better.

We would appreciate it if you could return your survey to us by Friday 31st July, 2015.

ALLOTMENT CHALLENGE

Do you have a passion for gardening and helping others?

Then we have a green fingered volunteering opportunity for you!

We are a local charity supporting people who are experiencing poor mental health. Our popular gardening project has been in operation for some years and as we seek funding for the project we need an enthusiastic volunteer to co-ordinate activities. Our allotment is located in Yeovil. We have the gardeners and the tools so we just need YOU!

We are looking for a volunteer gardener for approximately 6 hours per week, initially in the growing season to help our small but friendly group with growing and maintaining vegetables, herbs and flowers.

You will have exceptional people skills and empathy with those who need help with their recovery journey.


Please contact Doreen on 01935 474875 or email Doreen.smith@southsomersetmind.co.uk  if you would like more information or think you might be able to help


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.
