22 August 2017, Comments: Comments Off on Can you help? Major Research by Mind

Mind, the mental health charity, is conducting a major piece of research to find out what mental health care is like on a national scale. Can you help us?

We want to survey 5,000 people to find out about your experience of primary care (GPs, practice nurses, pharmacists etc.) and voluntary/third sector mental health care in England and Wales. We want to hear about referral routes, how easy services are to access, and the quality of them. We also want to hear about your experiences of stigma and discrimination.

Who is the survey for?

The survey is for anyone aged 16 years or older, with personal experience of mental health problems – either currently or in the last 12 months.  However, you do not have to have used mental health services to take part; you can also complete the survey if you’ve tried to access services, but did not end up using them. You also don’t need to have used Mind services to take part in this survey.

Have your say

To take part in this anonymous survey, please visit

If you would prefer to complete a paper survey, these can be ordered by emailing

We’d appreciate it if you could share this with your family, friends and colleagues; the more people who tell us about their experiences, the more we will be able to shape improvements for the future.

The results

We will be sharing the findings of the survey with researchers, policy makers, the media and organisations that provide mental health services. However, your answers will remain anonymous – no one will know who has said what, and responses won’t affect your care.
