The Big Mental Health Survey

Share your experiences of mental health support

National Mind's major research project, the Big Mental Health Survey  is launching for its third year on Monday 1 July. It explores people’s experiences of mental health support provided by the voluntary sector and primary care services (e.g. GPs). It also captures people’s experiences of discrimination.

Thank you to all the service users who supported us with this process, it was found that our services are highly valued.

“I wouldn’t be talking to you now if it wasn’t for them.”

 “They’re a 5 star service – I’d give them 6 stars if I could!”

“They (the advocate) was non-judgemental which meant I looked forward to seeing them, in fact I’m proud to say I got support from them – things were a bit overwhelming and they helped break things down to become manageable.”

“I didn’t know what I needed or what might help – they listened and helped me understand my options.”

“They helped me to convey my point of view when I felt I wasn’t being listened to. It made a real difference with my consultant. They could prompt me, remind me of things and keep notes of meetings that were really helpful for me.”

“My advocate is very confident…., so I pinched it (the confidence) off them!”
