Mission Statement: 

 

 

The Adhar Project empowers people to take control of and manage their own mental health difficulties. We achieve this by using a holistic approach and delivering services in a culturally relevant and personalised way.

 

 

 

Aims

 

·        Empower more people to manage their own mental health difficulties

 

 

 

We believe a key aspect of recovery is people learning to and growing in confidence to manage their own mental health issues. We believe all those suffering from mental health difficulties can achieve this. We offer therapeutic support using arts, social and cultural activities in 1-2-1 and group sessions to build confidence and understanding.

 

 

 

·        Reduce the stigma associated with mental health difficulties

 

 

 

We believe the stigma that is associated with mental health difficulties negatively affect the sufferer, their carers’ and the wider community. We acknowledge that stigma obstructs recovery and often delays the decision to seek intervention.  We strive to provide education and support to those experiencing mental health difficulties and, when funding allows, to carers and the wider community because we recognise that education and support helps to combat stigma.

 

 

 

·        Increase the equality of access to mental health services for those from the BME community

 

 

 

Adhar advocates on behalf of individuals and communities. Responding to consultations. Educating those with mental health difficulties about their rights and supporting them to challenge providers.

 

 

 

Vision Statement:

 

 

Our vision for the future is a society where all those with mental health difficulties live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.
