Positive Minds

Positive Minds is a grassroots based action group within Bradford District. It is focused on ensuring older people with depression are treated fairly and equitably. It is also determined to influence policy and service provision. Positive Minds seeks to foster effective relationships and create an environment for good partnership working between voluntary sector groups and statutory services to enable the sharing of good practice.

Positive Minds is an established group with volunteers and agencies from a cross section of voluntary and community groups and Statutory bodies working together to highlight the issue of older people with depression; helping people to identify depression so it is not seen as part of the ageing process and to signpost to where help can be found.

What we do:

  • Organise events
  • Support feel good groups
  • Run an electronic network to inform all those interested in older people & depression
  • Signpost to sources of mental health support for people over 50 in Bradford district
