Our next event…

Investec 10K Challenge

Sunday 8th September

For this year’s 10K run, Guernsey Mind and Investec are encouraging participants to challenge themselves.

You might be new to running, want to move up from 5K to 10K, smash your personal best, or team up with a buddy to tackle the distance together. This is your year to take on the 10K challenge.

Thank you

A huge thank you to all 740 people who took part in the Sunrise Walk of Hope.  Thanks also to our sponsors at Gower, the team at Vive La Villette and the wonderful Girl Guides who served the refreshments at the end. 

You might spot yourself in this video. If not, take a look at the images taken at the event by our photographer Chloe. 

Ross from Clicksmith has produced this video of the event featuring the track ‘Darkness into Day‘. The song has been written by Tim Osborne and recorded by local young singer ROMA and at Apocalypse Studios with Mikey Ferbrache.

Mental Health First Aider Training

This internationally recognised course teaches you how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. It won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially prevent a crisis.

I need help…

Seeking help is often the first step towards getting and staying well, but it can also be hard to know how to start and where to turn.
 
It is always OK to ask for help.

Someone I know needs help

It can be very difficult to see someone who you care about becoming unwell, but you don’t need to be an expert on mental health to offer support. Often small, everyday actions can make the biggest difference.
 

I need urgent help

At Guernsey Mind, we cannot provide a crisis service. If you need urgent help:

  • Talk to someone you trust
  • Contact your GP and request an urgent appointment
  • Contact the Samaritans on their free and confidential helpline 116 123
  • If you are concerned you might harm yourself or someone else, contact the Emergency Department on 01481 220000 or the emergency services on 999
  • If you are having thoughts or feelings of suicide, you can find support advice here

 

Support for under 18s

At Guernsey Mind, we offer support to those aged 18 and above, but there are some other places you can go to for support and advice.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2023

2023 was a busy year for the team at Guernsey Mind. You can see some of the things we’ve been up to in our Review of the Year.

Thank you to everyone who supported us during 2023 – we could not provide the services we do without the donations and fund raising we receive.

 

 

 

Guernsey Mind has been re-awarded the Mind Quality Mark

Mind Quality Mark Logo

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 directors, 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.
