Providing mental health advice, support and services

to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem in our area.

Our Wellbeing Programme offered solution focussed support through our Five Ways to Wellbeing Assessment, Plans and Reviews.

Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind has been awarded the Mind Quality Mark (MQM). The MQM is a robust quality assurance framework created by Mind, the mental health charity.

MQM sets out the baseline of best practice and legal compliance in all areas of a local Mind’s governance and activities. To achieve the MQM, a local Mind must meet or exceed all 24 key standards.

Local Minds undergo a rigorous assessment which includes a thorough appraisal of organisational policies and procedures as well as a visit and interviews with trustees, staff, volunteers and people who use services. MQM is awarded when all standards are fully met.

The MQM provides assurance that local Minds across England and Wales are well-run organisations who meet Mind’s expectations of good practice, and in many cases excel beyond those expectations. It provides assurance that they are healthy, ambitious and strong in providing the highest quality support to people experiencing or at risk of developing mental health problems.

Self-Harmony Counselling

Self-Harmony @ Swindon & Gloucestershire Mind offers a 1:1 confidential and non-judgmental counselling service in a safe environment for people who self-harm and self-injure.

People self-harm and self-injure for a number of reasons and do so to cope with deep distress which cannot be articulated verbally. It might be a result of something they have done or had done to them or because of issues they cannot cope with, there is no rule of thumb.
