Our vision for Lambeth and Southwark Mind is of a centre that improves the lives of people experiencing mental distress. We aim to be a creative centre providing long term therapies and peer support groups in Lambeth and Southwark.
We aim to be an organisation that responds sensitively and thoughtfully to people with mental health problems in the inner city; that understands that mental health problems are deeply entrenched in the inequalities and deprivations of class, race, gender and sexuality.
We don’t believe that mental health problems can be treated by a ‘one size fits all’ approach, but need a unique and ethical response to the individual needs of each person. We aim to respond to high levels of need in the boroughs in which we work by offering a range of services so people can choose the support that feels right for them.
