Good people, helping good people in tough times
Who We Are
Our team was born out of research, need, necessity & understanding. We decided to utilise our decades of personal experience to just 'chat over a cuppa', to see if talking and sharing experiences will help.
We also sought ideas, help and advice across a multitude of fellow organisations and our potential clients. We built up months of planning, research and study trials.
This indicated people wanted a “lifeboat” between interventions from professionals when it just gets too much for them.
This is where we come in with empathy, hot drinks, biscuits, and a listening ear.
We are a charitable Community Interest Company, aiming to support & improve the mental health of the community and when needed to support the community wellbeing.
We compliment all other services, charitable & statutory alike, as a Level zero service provider as described in our local authorities Stepped Care Approach.
We talk, we listen, we offer a space where discussions can take place, we empower the client to make the sometimes, tough choices.
SUPPORTING THE MENTAL WELLBEING OF THE COMMUNITY
It is our experience, it must come from the person wanting to make the change; we talk and discuss tips & tricks that have helped us and may serve to give you hope, to help you through the tough times. We
support, we share, we laugh, we cry but most importantly we enable & enpower.
Since its foundation in February 2018 as Myndful, RISE, now has actively responded to and prevented a multitude of clients from their darkest of times. Our volunteers and support teams have enabled hundreds of clients to take their recovery back into their own hands.
Our senior Mindful Peer Support Volunteers can support out of hours but this must be validated by any professional who will be involved; again just acting as that experienced friend, side by side as you need us.
We also attend health forums & networks with our fellow organisations across the sector to keep our team up to speed what is happening across the borough. Our services are also available on a referral basis with all other services across our town so we can jointly work with you on your recovery. We have received referrals from various groups and have a proven track record in supporting our client’s needs.
We also offer a truly GDPR secure e-mail service for safe data transfer between ourselves, clients & referring partners.
OUR CLIENT PROMISE - Person-Centred Care
We promise to be there for you every step of your journey.
Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, learn from your experiences and hopefully move forward to where you need and even, want to be in your life.
OUR FOCUS & ETHOS - Prevention of Dependency
To empower individuals to see their issues in a different light or from a different perspective and become aware of their inner strengths.
We achieve this by providing a safe space either in your home or at a predetermined location where we listen to your concerns and customise your support accordingly.
OUR PEER SUPPORT VOLUNTEERS - We get you!
Our lived experience enables us to offer effective person-centred care.
We support people with various mental health disorders and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples to explore what is going in for them, at that moment.
Through our peer support and mindfulness services, you can and will alleviate mental illness issues.
