Underpinning all we do at Solent Mind is our mission statement, which is to provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Our mission is reviewed regularly as part of our overall business planning process, which involves trustees, staff and service users in making sure our direction is the right one.
Supporting our mission are our values, the ethical framework around which we operate our organisation:
Open. We reach out to anyone who needs us.
Together. We’re stronger in partnership.
Responsive. We listen, we act.
Independent. We speak out fearlessly.
Unstoppable. We never give up.
With our clear statement of who we are, what we do and the value base on how we do it, we are able to be clear about where we want to be in the future, as our Vision Statement sets out:
We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.
By 2020, in the communities in which we work, we want:
- Everyone with a mental health issue to trust Solent Mind to be on their side, and be able to support them or to find support for them
- Everyone supported by Solent Mind to know how they can achieve good mental wellbeing
- People with lived experience to share the power to design, deliver and lead mental health services
