Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Mind in Kingston is fully committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, and ensuring that people accessing our services are treated equally and with respect and dignity, and that our charity and services are inclusive and reflective of our local community.
The Black Lives Matter protests and movement have starkly highlighted the racism and discrimination that is inherent in our society, and this is particularly so for people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities that need mental health support.
We want to make sure that we, as an organisation and as individuals that work for Mind in Kingston, we make this our priority so that we can achieve our vision that everyone with a mental health issue gets support and respect.
If you wish to share your experiences with us; if you have any comments or questions, or if you have any ideas or suggestions please contact us. Any information you share will be treated in confidence and anonymised.
