Shropshire Mind was established 42 years ago and provides a diverse range of quality services, across the County for the one in four people and their families acknowledged to be affected by mental or emotional distress.
We help to bridge the gap between illness and full independence for service users. Some people need support in many areas of their lives, others in just a few, some for long periods of time, others for only a short while. Respect for users, with justice and equality of access to services are part of our vision that everyone has the right to live equally with others and to enjoy a good quality of life.We try to enable service users to play the fullest possible part in the communities in which they live. We work in partnership with clients to ensure their right to make choices is preserved. We are also striving to reduce the debilitation, alienation, stigma and social isolation experienced by vulnerable people living in rural areas.
Our work includes group work based at our Shrewsbury premises and also at venues in Ludlow, Church Stretton, Whitchurch, Bridgnorth, Market Drayton and Oswestry with the aim of establishing additional groups across the county. Shropshire Mind has an established and trained volunteer base and a small number of paid staff who run specific projects. The charity has a board of Trustees who meet as the Executive Committee and of those trustees there are elected officers – Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.
