Merger with Community Action Halfway Home
The recent merger with Community Action Halfway Home ('Halfway') has helped Sheffield Mind expand and diversify its services and increase the expertise and experience of its workforce. Teething troubles aside, the transition has been a relatively smooth one and we hope that as a result of the increase in capacity, we will be able to offer a more comprehensive and effective services to our clients.
Already we have increased the number of support groups that we offer and have introduced group Drama and Art therapy to the options available from our Counselling and Therapy team.
We believe that in addition to increasing capacity, the merger will improve our position financially and allow us to provide effective, diverse and sustainable services to people with mental health needs in Sheffield.
Sheffield Mind Fundraising Ball - 18 April 2015
We are holding a grand ball to raise funds and awareness of the work we do and the people we help.
The event is being organised by the Chair of Sheffield Mind, Gill Holt - with more than a little help from her friends - and in addition to the dinner and dancing, Gill has managed to acquire an outstanding selection of raffle prizes and auction lots to tempt guests to donate.
If you are interested in finding out more about the event you can check out the web page here and keep an eye on facebook and twitter for the latest news on special guests and promotions.
Time To Change - latest news
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded £3000 to organise a programme of events and activities aimed at raising awareness and reducing the discrimination still experienced by people suffering with mental illness.
We will be working with partners at Time to Change and Sheffield City Council to deliver activities designed to encourage individuals to speak openly about their experiences and share their stories with friends, colleagues and family members.
We hope that by doing so, they can help us dispel some of the ignorance that still exists about certain conditions and put an end to the prejudice that some individuals still experience.
We are particularly delighted to be working with Time to Change again and looking forward to building on the success of last year's Lets Get Talking project.
If you are interested in lending your support to the current campaign you can join us at our forthcoming tea party, see Sheffield Mind's Facebook page for details.
Sheffield Mental Health Guide Re-launch
In addition to the above, we have redesigned and relaunched the Sheffield Mental Health Guide (www.sheffieldmentalhealth.org.uk) and are continuing to promote the resource to medical professionals and health practitioners as well as members of the public.
The guide provides a directory of mental health services in Sheffield and includes information on a wide range of conditions, support groups and self help. The guide is managed by staff who are able to advise users on how to use the directory and get access to the services they need. The guide is constantly updated to ensure that information is accurate and up to date and staff monitor service provision across the city to ensure comprehensive listings.
Sheffield Mind is a leading provider of mental health and wellbeing services in Sheffield.
