Shropshire Mind 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.

Shropshire Mind helps 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.
  • 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
  • strive to reduce the debilitation, alienation, stigma and social isolation experienced by vulnerable people living in rural areas.
