1 in 25 people in Hampshire accessed mental health support from Solent Mind, recent report shows.

As Solent Mind celebrated it’s 60th anniversary, the latest figures showed that almost 55,000 people across Hampshire received support from the local branch of Mind in 2021-22. This works out as around 1 in 25 people in the county accessing support from the local charity.

With the demand for mental health services increasing since the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been a period of rapid growth for the charity which has it’s head office in Southampton.

“The breadth and depth of our services has grown, as we support people from across Hampshire, Southampton and Portsmouth. From the furthest point of the rural New Forest, or the diversity of busy Shirley or Southsea, our teams seek to reflect and serve our communities,” said Solent Mind CEO Sally Arscott.

“We champion the growing awareness of mental health and welcome the reduction in stigma to accessing support, but there is much more to do. Our task is to reach out to everyone, and ensure that anyone who needs our help, is able to access it.”

Some standout numbers from the report include:
