MindWise is committed to providing cooperative, interconnected services which work together.
Our Services are committed to these key principles:

Independence - We always act in the interests of our enquirers and are not influenced by any external bodies or interest groups.

Impartiality – Everyone who contacts us is treated appropriately and with respect. We make no assumptions or judgements about our callers, and every enquiry is taken seriously. We are all too aware that in mainstream mental health provision, 1 in 3 people are turned away when they first ask for help.

Confidentiality – Everything callers tell us is treated in the strictest confidence and in accordance with Rethink’s confidentiality policy.

Free access – No-one ever has to pay for the advice or information they receive.

We use Language Line, enabling non-English speaking callers to contact us in their first language. We also use Type Talk for those with a hearing impairment
