Hi I’m Marie and in July I joined the team at Brecon & District Mind.I’ve been working in the third / voluntary sector in health & social care in Powys, the most rural county of England & Wales, for 19 years now!
Before joining Mind I worked with Credu, an organisation supporting unpaid Carers & Young Carers.Brecon & District Mind supports local people in the area - our purpose is ‘we’re here when you need us to help you manage your mental health & wellbeing’.We currently do this in range of ways via services, such as:through drop ins, groups & activities and so much more."What our support looks like can look quite different as it’s tailored to you or your family."We always start by listening to people about their unique situation and working alongside people, building on their strengths towards their idea of what a good life would look like.
So what our support looks like can look quite different as it’s tailored to you or your family.Being part of Welsh charities for so long has been very special, most of the memorable moments have been part of bringing people together to highlight important issues and to celebrate what has gone well, the most powerful has always been from the people themselves.It’s not surprising that Powys has the highest number of charitable organisations in Wales (3696) as so many support local areas.Read more on mind.org.uk
