Merry Christmas from all of us at Minding Minds.
Our inception and why we give back.
"You can't take charity when you're struggling, and not give back when you're not. "
The formation of Minding Minds, and the raising of the funds to train our MD Chris Stewart, was a prime example of peoples good will, and generosity.
Chris says :
"The MHFA family seemed the natural place for me. I had suffered from Bi-polar two and GAD since the age of twelve, and had self medicated with alcohol for years.
The people I get to work with feel like my tribe. I have to give back to others just as others had done for me."
Chris has worked in front line substance misuse treatment for Turning Point, and went on to devise and implement an alcohol service for West Berkshire for the NHS and Turning Point.
"We helped a lot of people, some of whom have gone on to live amazingly generous lives. The power of recovery whether from Mental Health issues or the associated substance misuse, constantly amazes me."
Chris went on to work in the field and as a media spokesperson, and as a guest expert on BBC Breakfast.
After a spell in private practice Chris moved to Barbados and worked on the planning of a new rehab.
Minding Minds was formed with funding from a kickstarter campaign, and the generosity of many individual donors drive our commitment to support charities and vulnerable individuals.
"We simply had to find a way to give beck the generosity that others had shown us. I had to find a method of pay back that reflected the support shown us."
Going forward we have continued this ethos and in the past year (2020/21) we have offered reduced cost spaces to charities supporting the homeless, housing co-operatives and local ecological groups.
In this financial year we have given reductions of over £5,600 to organisations that couldn't have afforded full price places. We will continue to do this into 2021.
If you represent a charity or CIC or are interested in taking the course as an individual but are unable to fully fund - please contact us directly here.
"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile."
