Mind's Network Quality Team are looking for someone who is passionate about mental health and wants to enhance the quality and sustainability of local Mind support.
Mind won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. This is a chance for you to support local Minds to help realise that promise and to recognise the excellence in the Mind network.
The team assures the quality of the 115 local Minds in England and Wales through the Mind Quality Mark (MQM), which was co-designed with local Minds and people with lived experience of mental health problems. The team also provides support to help local Minds reach and exceed the MQM promoting a culture of continual improvement.
