Caring Minds - Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Charity

Caring Minds charity is more relevant now than ever as we have come through the most challenging two years in the history of the health service and acknowledge the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the mental health of staff, service users and the communities that we serve.

Pre COVID -19  ‘In any given year 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem’, we are yet to see the true impact across this statistic

BSMHFT operates from over 50 sites throughout the Birmingham and Solihull areas to provide a wide range of inpatient, community, and specialist mental health services for service users of all ages. From young people aged over 16, right through to providing mental health care and treatment for older adults.

Together, these services include elements of rehabilitation, crisis and home treatment, assertive outreach, early intervention, addictions, day services and mental health wellbeing. Whilst our work covers many areas and can often be complex, our aim is simple ‘improving mental health wellbeing’

Enhancing a person’s visit to BSMHFT can make all the difference to their wellbeing, improving recovery and overall experience of our services. Caring Minds are committed to providing support for the best possible facilities and environment for our service users, carer’s, visitors, and staff in order that wellbeing, recovery and experience is maximised.

Caring Minds are here to support the Trusts Vision of Improving Mental Health Wellbeing by providing funding that will enhance and add value to the service user and staff experience beyond what the NHS is able to provide. This may include equipment, specialised furniture, service user events, activities, carer’s well being activities, staff appreciation events and many more.

We aim to bring the Trust and communities together through fundraising events and campaigns and we welcome the support and involvement from supporters, service users, carers and friends of the trust.

We actively seek new ways to support as many areas across the trust as possible, and encourage those who see opportunities to contact us to discuss ideas.
