An organisation supporting anyone, anywhere, suffering from mental health, grief, suicidal crisis or in need of a shoulder to cry on. We provide coping tips and coping advice, listening supports, group chats, events and using music, apps, nature and videos to help. We offer the opportunity to share grief and pain and ensure people are receiving support. Mind Allies is an organisation that ensures that support is provided there and then with growing services and finding new and innovative ways of supporting people.
How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?
If someone presents to us with serious concerns or if someone has attempted suicide and we have been made aware, one of our trained staff will contact them to ensure that they are getting the support they need. There is support for families and friends made instantly available via face to face support and services.
If someone is contemplating suicide, we will work towards supporting them in getting help using music, meditation and yoga and ensure that they are getting the medical support they need.
What are your current priorities?
Our priorities are the people. As an organisation, we have made a lot of facilities available to our staff and volunteers. They are the people who are on the front line and therefore have a major value and say in what support needs to be made available or improvements need to be made to helping people.
At the moment, we are working on our launching our Omnichannel support service and corporate support service.
What challenges are you currently facing?
The current challenges we are facing are recognition and funding.
As an organisation starting up one faces many challenges but we are overcoming and whizzing through the challenges. To find funding we have come up with a new way to self-fund ourselves and to support others. Our corporate selling platform will be rolling out within the coming month.
