Raising Awareness of Mental Health with Mind North Staffs

Working in partnership with the mental health charity Mind North Staffs – who have been working closely with Silverdale Athletic Football Club in recent weeks – Staffordshire FA will be raising awareness of mental health and the support network which is available to anyone who is suffering with mental health issues.

Further information on the work in this area will be communicated in the coming weeks, but in the meantime please visit the Mind North Staffs website for further information on the support which is available to anyone who is struggling with mental health issues.

A Message from Mind North Staffs – For Better Mental Health

We are an experienced provider of mental health services in North Staffordshire and are a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. As a local Mind association and affiliated member of Mind (National Association for Mental Health) North Staffs Mind shares the statement and vision of our national organisation:

Working to create a better life for everyone with experience of mental distress, primarily in North Staffordshire

Our vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all, and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect.

The needs and experiences of people with mental distress drive our work and we make sure that their voice is heard by those who influence change. Our independence gives us the freedom to stand up and speak out on the real issues that affect daily lives. We deliver local mental health services, provide information and support, and campaign to improve policy and attitudes.

We can help:

- Adults with counselling, social support groups and supported housing

- Children and young people

- Local businesses through mental health training

- Provide supervision for counsellors and other health workers
