Mind in Harrow is a mental health organisation started in the 1960’s and has expanded to provide a range of services. We currently employ a team of 20 staff and have the support of 60 volunteers. We are an independent charity affiliated to National Mind and are part of a network of 200 Local Mind Associations across the country.
Mind in Harrow’s Chief Executive Mark Gillham said:
“This project is of vital importance to address the disadvantages faced by our beneficiaries. People with mental health needs continue to have some of the highest unemployment rates of any group, despite wanting to work. While attitudes to mental health in the workplace are improving, negative views about the ability of people with some mental health diagnoses to be successful employees sadly persist.”
Mind in Harrow is committed to providing the highest quality community mental health services, which anticipate, meet and exceed the expectations of service users, workers and other stakeholders. As a Local Mind Association (LMA), the quality of our services are assured through Quality Management in Mind (QMiM) standards, assessment and continuous improvement plans.
