In this month’s Mindful Memo, we report on RB Mind being awarded the Mind Quality Mark 2021-24, a wonderful achievement for our charity. Also, did you know you can get a London Marathon medal without running? And as poor mental health costs UK employers £42-45bn each year, let us improve wellbeing in your workplace! Read it now here:
Richmond Borough Mind has been awarded the Mind Quality Mark 2021-24. The Mind Quality Mark is a rigorous quality assurance standard. It sets the bar of good practice and legal compliance for all organisations in the Mind Federation.
Once every three years, local Minds are reviewed against the Mind Quality Mark standards.The reviews are led by people with lived experience of mental health problems and senior leaders from other local Minds. They are based on a robust assessment of documentary evidence as well as interviews with, and survey responses from, trustees, staff, volunteers, and people who use services. To achieve the Mind Quality Mark, local Minds must be well-run organisations delivering safe, life-changing support for people with mental health problems.
We have launched a new monthly Peer Lunch Club, run by and for people who experience mental health problems. Come along to meet others, enjoy the food, and you can help prepare the dishes too! The location is near Twickenham Green – this will be sent to you upon booking. To register please email: [email protected]
