Everything we say and do is rooted in the experiences of people who know what it’s like to live with a mental health problem. That includes the thousands of people who rely on our local services, our incredible supporters, fundraisers, volunteers, staff and trustees. Their experiences bring our work to life. We provide life-saving and life-changing services when people need it most. Read our annual review for an overview of key achievements this year:
Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind are extremely privileged to welcome members of the Civil Service Fast Stream to our Westminster office, where they will be delivering employment workshops for service users.
Over a period of 6 weeks, a team of Fast Stream graduates will bring their skills and energy to deliver employment workshops aimed at supporting people with mental health problems to re-engage with meaningful employment or to contribute further to community life.
Through the scheme, Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind will engage with service users to support those who have been out of work to brush up on useful skills such as CV writing, interview skills, presentation skills and more.
The first session was held on the 12th January and was a huge success. Participants said they felt empowered by the session and had a better understanding of how to take their first steps back into work.
For those suffering from mental health issues, anxieties around securing and sustaining employment can be exceedingly stressful and have a negative impact on their mental wellbeing. BWW Mind is delighted to be offering these sessions to support service users and give them the confidence to fulfill their potential.
