We campaign to improve sleep support and access to high quality information, raise awareness of the value of a good night’s sleep and promote understanding around the complexities of sleep. We want everyone to share our vision that sleep is a vital component of health and wellbeing and that everyone living with sleep issues should have access to effective, consistent, evidence-based support.

Sleep is essential for our health and wellbeing yet it is estimated that 40% of the population suffer with sleep issues and many do not get the support that they need. 

We have a wide range of courses on offer for both families and professionals. We have trained NHS staff from leading hopsitals including Evelina Hospital, Great Ormond Street and Sheffield Children’s Hospital. We provide a range of “Sleep Workshops” for parent/carers, professionals and young people.

We aim to:

  • Provide access to high quality information and advice to deal with most sleep issues
  • To ensure everyone understands the value of a good night’s sleep
  • To campaign for improvements to the support available
  • Make a positive difference to the lives of those we work with by campaigning for improvement to the support available
  • Provide accredited training for professionals so they can offer sleep support to the people they work with

NB:  “The Sleep Council’ is our voluntary advisory board. The Advisory Board helps to shape the future of sleep support nationally and plays a vital role around providing advice, challenge and scrutiny on key issues and programmes.

The professionals’ expertise spans across sleep, sport science, nutrition, menopause, mental health, sleep research, primary care, public health, sensory processing, CBTi and medical sleep disorders.

We help to enable people who use our services to play the fullest possible part in their own communities and their own recovery.

We are also striving to reduce the debilitation, alienation, stigma and social isolation experienced by vulnerable people living in rural areas.

Our core service is our Shrewsbury based daily drop in, which runs seven days a week and offers people the chance to relax in a safe, nurturing environment and enjoy taking part in social activities. In addition, we offer a range of groups in Shrewsbury, including Mindfulness for Wellbeing, Reconnect (wellbeing group), Road to Recovery, Women in Mind and Hearing Voices. Our services also extend beyond Shrewsbury to a number of outreach groups held in Whitchurch, Bridgnorth, Ludlow and Market Drayton. These groups operate on a drop in basis and are run by our excellent team of volunteers.

Shropshire MHS operates with a small team of dedicated staff and large team of exceptional volunteers. We have a board of trustees who meet monthly and hold the charity’s activities to account.

Shropshire MHS’s main objective is to empower anyone experiencing a mental health challenge. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental ill-health in Shropshire, making sure that the people in need of support are heard.

Our values and beliefs are reflected in the service we provide, in that we:

  • Make sure the service we provide reflects the needs of the local community;
  • Respect the dignity and rights of everyone that uses our service;
  • Make sure that our services are appropriate, safe and acceptable;

The Charity produces newsletters,  conference reports, holds an annual family conference, and is an integral member of the specially commissioned multi-disciplinary BBS Clinics. Awareness of the Syndrome has grown massively as a result and the Charity now supports over 500 families and communicates with over 130 professionals involved in their care.
