Our Mission Statement
The aims of Dorset Mind Your Head are to;
Raise awareness amongst young people, their parents and carers about how to be mentally healthy and about mental health problems. We educate young people about symptoms of mental ill health – what they are, what to expect, how to spot them and how to support others. We also educate young people about what they can do to live a mentally healthy lifestyle.
We challenge the stigma and inequality of mental ill health for young people so that neither stigma nor inequality prevent them receiving the information and support they need.
We promote the ethos of recovery from mental ill health by educating young people about recovery and by signposting to, or directly providing support services to assist them in their own recovery.
We won’t give up until every young person experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.
