Mental Health Directory
Designed to quickly direct you to relevant support services
We know that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year. But our independent research shows that the estimated quarter of a million people who work and volunteer in the emergency services are even more at risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the general population, but are less likely to get support.
Mind has been awarded LIBOR funding to develop the Blue Light Programme, to provide mental health support for emergency services staff and volunteers from police, fire, ambulance and search and rescue services across England. The programme is being developed in consultation with individuals from across the emergency services.
We received an overwhelming response to our online survey, and would like to say a big thank you to every one of the 3700 people who shared their views. We are in the process of analysing the full responses and we will be sharing more results with you soon.
Make sure you receive regular email updates about the Blue Light Programme and the support on offer. It's the best way to find out what's happening, when and how you can get involved.
