On the 1st August Depression Alliance merged with Mind. Mind in Croydon is one of seven Local Mind Associations who will now deliver the Friends in Need service previously delivered by Depression Alliance. Depression Alliance’s services are all rooted in peer support. Friends in Need was created by Depression Alliance. It is a supportive space that everyone living with depression can use to connect with others online or in their local area. Nationally, Mind will continue to deliver the Friends in Need online community. You may be familiar with the Friends in Need local wellbeing network – it provides face-to-face services for people with depression.
We would like to welcome Sarah Strong and Katie Oliver to the Mind in Croydon team.
