Services we provide
Mind in Ealing and Hounslow offers a wide range of services to fulfil the needs of people in the local community who experience mental ill health. These are designed to provide support to the individual, rebuild confidence and aid them on the road to recovery.
Our advocacy services are free and operate independently of the mental health or social services. The advocate offers you the opportunity to speak with someone in confidence on a wide range of issues and supports service users to make informed decisions concerning their rights and treatment.
BMER Community Outreach Service
Our BMER community outreach staff work within the boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow raising awareness of our services, promoting social inclusion and aiding positive mental wellbeing. They work alongside our other projects and in partnership with local communities, statutory providers and voluntary and independent organisations. The aim of this service is to enable people to access advice and support in areas such as housing, immigration and health, identify unmet needs of vulnerable groups and reduce ethnic inequalities in mental health service experience and outcomes.
Our Activity Centre is a place for people who have mental health problems to go for company and mutual support. We seek to lessen isolation and offer structured and enjoyable activities to help people regain their self assurance within a safe and friendly environment.
