Our work

Caring Minds is here to support the Trust’s vision of improving mental health wellbeing by providing funding that will enhance and add values 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, staff appreciation events and many more.

Video tours of Trust premises funded by Caring Minds 

Mental health hospitalisation can be daunting for our patients and their loved ones. To help provide some reassurance for current and future patients, Caring Minds has funded the production of a handful of films to show what life is like behind the doors at our secure sites and our aims to provide a safe, structured, and comfortable environment for all our patients during their time with us.

Book launch The Best Recovery funded by Caring Minds

Our experts by experience programme at BSMHFT works closely with and develops the skills of people who have used the Trust services. One of our experts by experience, Abdirisak Hussein, wrote a book based on his own journey and experience with mental health. Caring Minds were really pleased to hold a small book launch and fund copies of his book, ‘The Best Recovery’ to help celebrate the success. (photo: The Best Recovery)

Ardenleigh Art Exhibition 2023 funded by Caring Minds

140 art pieces were collected as part of a summer art exhibition held at Ardenleigh. The former magnolia corridors at the centre have now been transformed into a colourful and meaningful array of artwork thanks to the recent project led by Deborah Tomlin-Taylor, our Senior Arts Psychotherapist.

The event was made possible thanks to the generous funding of Caring Minds.
