What we do

Our vision is for a world where everyone experiencing a mental health issue receives support and respect.

Our mission is to make sure anyone in our community experiencing a mental health issue has somewhere to turn to for advice, information and support.

We're Solent Mind

We’re sometimes called a ‘local branch’, but we’re actually an independent registered charity. Solent Mind is part of a network of over 100 Local Minds who tailor trusted mental health services to our communities. We set our own strategies, partnerships and rely on the support of our brilliant local fundraisers.

We collaborate with Mind to make sure their pioneering campaigns, information and research makes a difference in Hampshire. Together, we make better mental health possible both locally and nationally.

Our values ensure that people can trust Solent Mind to be on their side:

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.
