Basildon Mind was set up over 40 years ago and became a registered charity within the voluntary sector. Since that time, we have been helping people who experience mental distress to be empowered to gain a better quality of life.
In 2003 we became a company limited by guarantee and have retained our charitable and voluntary status.
We offer services, support and advice to people with mental distress. We also provide information to professionals, carers, family and friends. Mental distress is not just about people suffering from Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, Dementia, but people suffering from Stress, Anxiety, and Bereavement, which are problems that people have had to deal with at some time in their life. Whatever the form of mental distress, for the person concerned it can be a real problem. We are non-judgemental, non-clinical and listen to the person whose life is being affected.
We have attained quality standards in the following: Supporting People in Essex, National Mind and are signed up to the Mindful Employer Charter.
