Since 1995, Herts Mind Network has employed individuals with experience of mental health conditions and now has over 70% of its workforce having experienced such a condition at some point in their life. Herts Mind Network’s unique selling point (USP) is the empowerment of meaningful recovery for individuals through paid employment opportunities within its services. This sets the organisation apart from other mental health providers, promotes recovery and helps significantly reduce the social and economic costs associated with mental health conditions.
As a user led organisation, the views and needs of service users and those who care for them are always considered before planning and developing new services. Herts Mind Network works within a culture of openness and integrity with strong governance structures underpinning service delivery. All services are based on the principles of self-help with a strong emphasis on peer support.
