A Message from our CEO, Olivia Craig
There are some really exciting changes ahead for our organisation. This month, we will also be known as Devon Mind. Why? We are committed to strengthening our offer across Devon. We want to reach communities who have little to no access to mental health support, increasing our reach to people at greater risk of isolation. We plan to grow our training portfolio across Devon with a focus on delivering work place wellbeing initiatives and mental health awareness training, as well as expanding our campaign against stigma and discrimination. We are in the process of developing a new website for Devon Mind – watch this space!
Change is a process and not an event – so we will be taking the development of Devon Mind step-by-step. We will spend the next 12 months finding out about the services people need in Devon, what partners we can work alongside, and how we can raise funding to expand our flagship Recovery College service across the county over the coming years.
It is important to note that we remain COMMITTED to our work in Plymouth and our services here will continue as ‘business as usual’. We will continue to work from our Greenbank centre. We aim to share the journey of Devon Mind’s development with all our service-users, partners, and supporters and we welcome feedback and advice on where people feel we should focus our priorities.
