Mental Health Matters (MHM) was established 30 years ago by families and carers in the North East to provide support and care for people they loved with mental health problems.
Today, MHM has grown into a major national organisation supporting people with learning disabilities, drug and alcohol and other problems, as well as our core client group of people with mental health needs, across the UK through a range of evidence based and innovative services.
Our fully trained, dedicated, experienced and caring staff work with partner organisations to deliver comprehensive services to meet a full range of personal needs in a seamless manner to help vulnerable people to develop, ‘recover’ and move on to independent living whenever possible.
We provide support to more than 60,000 people every year, covering many aspects of their lives: from psychological and well-being therapeutic recovery interventions through to everyday employment, housing, independent and community support needs. We aim to enable each individual to recover and / or move towards their own independence and well-being.
Mental Health Matters also seeks to strengthen the voice, rights and independence of our users, their carers and their friends and families and to challenge the stigmas and negative attitudes that are still associated with mental health, learning disability and addiction.
