“Nothing about me without me” (Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS, July 2010). This relates to the concept of shared decision making with service users and carers being experts by their own experience.
Our values have been chosen for us by those that access or have accessed Mental health services. These are called The 5 Values and are embedded in all the work that we do. They are:
- Working Together
Available at the following venues:
Mind in Cambs, Lifecraft, Recovery college, Richmond Fellowship, The Sanctuarys, Red2Green, Peterborough & Fenland Mind. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can post one out to you.
