Our Mission

South Lakeland Mind exists to enhance the quality of life of people experiencing mental and emotional distress and to work generally towards the promotion of better mental health and a greater sense of wellbeing for people in South Lakeland.

Our Values

Everybody experiencing mental or emotional distress has the right to live a full life, to play their full part in society and to be treated fairly and with respect.

People experiencing mental or emotional distress have the right to information and choice and to be involved in their own care and recovery.

South Lakeland Mind was awarded the Mind Quality Mark in 2015 and is committed to providing a quality of service that aims to meet the needs and expectations of service users, funders and other stakeholders. South Lakeland Mind has adopted Mind’s values and principles and is committed to equal opportunities.
