1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year, and 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week. Wiltshire Mind are here to provide a safe and friendly place where anyone can find the support and respect they need and deserve.
Wiltshire Mind provides counselling for adults and also young people, and support groups across Wiltshire, for those experiencing emotional distress, or common mental health problems.
Mental health charities are needed now more than ever, and mental health is a particular issue that is dominant in the construction industry. According to Mates in Mind (2022) – men in the UK are three times more likely to die by suicide than women. However, in construction – a male dominated industry – men are three times more likely to die by suicide than the national average for men.
Ashford Homes has chosen Wiltshire Mind as its first official “Charity of the Year” partnership. We will be organising a range of fundraising events over the next year to raise as much money as we can for this unfunded local charity.
