All about MIND.org

 

With this week being the UK’s Mental Health Awareness Week, SMP Healthcare Ltd have looked a little closer at the charity MIND to let you know about what help is available to people suffering with mental health or psychiatric issues.

As a specialist private medical insurance broker we know that many of our clients have cover relating to mental health issues within their insurance policies, however we also know that there are general exclusions relating to specific triggers such as drug dependence and alcohol abuse. So where can people turn when they need help that they cannot get under their insurance or quickly enough on the NHS?

MIND is a charity who provide people who need help with mental health issues valuable advice and support. They campaign to improve services, raise a greater level of awareness and promote understanding about mental health.

Statistics confirm that one in four of us in the UK will suffer with a mental health problem and MIND believe that no one should have to face mental health issues alone.
