Our people – volunteer stories
‘Solent Mind was instrumental in my recovery. They gave me hope when I had none. I also gained skills so I could live a more full and meaningful life. I will always be grateful to Solent Mind and wanted to give something back. Volunteering was the best thing I could do to thank them for the help I received along the way.’

It really is appreciated when you volunteer for Solent Mind. It is not taken for granted, as we all have the same objective. We want to make people’s lives better who have Mental Health difficulties. If someone has a lifelong condition or for a short period in their life you can do your bit to help. This might be the time in your life when you can give something back to our Community here in the Solent region. No matter what your walk of life, we are all working together to improve the Mental wellbeing of local people.

‘I like to volunteer at Solent Mind as I feel they have given me so much during my own recovery. I am now able to give something back and help others progress in their recovery. I have also met some really nice people with like minded values, goals and understanding and now regard them as really good friends’
