Who we are?

We’re Norfolk and Waveney Mind, the mental health charity that believes no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We work to reduce the stigma associated with mental health, support people in their recovery and champion better services for all. We believe that with the right support and resources everybody can create a life that feels meaningful irrespective of the presence of symptoms. To do this we share our own stories, insights and expertise.

We believe that anyone can recover from a mental health problem and that this recovery is built on a foundation of the following:


Positive connections

Recovery focused relationships with the people we support are at the heart of what we do.


Fostering hope for the future

We believe that everyone can recover from experiences of poor mental health, no matter how severe or enduring.


Strong sense of self and an identity outside of a diagnosis

Support that isn't centred on diagnosis or treatment.  We recognise that everyone has a unique, positive identity that is always more than their diagnosis.


Support people to find meaning and purpose

Living a life that has meaning and purpose, in line with a person's values, is essential for recovery.


Empowering people

We support people to make choices and have control over what they do and how we work together.

Our mission

Our vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect. The needs and experiences of all people with mental distress drive our work and we make sure their voice is heard by those who influence change. We do all this to make mental wellbeing universally understood and aspired to. We will ensure that it is possible for people who experience mental distress to enjoy hope and aspiration, to live full and meaningful lives and to play their full part in society.

Our key principles underpin all our work:
  • Respect – for human diversity, for ourselves and each other and for our environment.
  • Rediscovery – of self, family, friends and community, of wellbeing and ability, and of purpose and hope.
  • Resources – to deal with stress, life’s challenges and relapse and ill health.
  • ‚ÄčResilience – to grow and develop the ability to recover and attain independence.
