Local mental wellbeing charity Guernsey Mind is reminding everyone in the Bailiwick to complete a survey which will uncover community attitudes towards mental health.

The deadline to participate in the survey is 31st August, and it can be conducted online, or by completing the printed survey which was distributed to all Guernsey households earlier this month.

The completed surveys should be returned to special post boxes in Waitrose Admiral Park, Alliance and Forest Stores

The information gained from this research will provide a benchmark against which Mind can track the island’s attitude towards mental health and wellbeing. This information will also help to shape the focus of Mind’s future prevention and support programmes, leading to a sustainable plan for the charity’s long-term future.

The initiative is being supported by business services firm Deloitte. The organisation is working with Mind in Guernsey and Jersey to support the charity’s vision of a society that has a positive attitude towards mental wellbeing. The research project is the first stage of a three-year commitment to the mental health charity.

‘This survey will help us to find out what people in Guernsey think about mental health and what they want Guernsey Mind to do in the future. The more responses we receive, the more robust our research and planning will be,’ says Emily Litten, Executive Director of Guernsey Mind.

The survey can be completed online: https://surveyhub.deloitte.co.uk/wix/8/p1858993788.aspx
