About this cause
Stockport Mind supports all those within the community who experience mental distress, or they are carers for those who experience mental distress. An independent adult mental health charity that offers friendly, accessible support and information. This can be one to one support, groups and volunteering opportunities. Our values and ethos: Respect for people, their experiences and their opinions, a belief in the principle of recovery and working with people to achieve their potential, an inclusive and welcoming service that is open and signposts to an alternative service where "Mind in Stockport" cannot deliver, a belief in a social rather than a medical model of mental distress. Focusing on the person as a whole, rather than the diagnosis.
