Welcome to Love Me, Love My Mind.
We are a small, grassroots charity based in Epsom, Surrey, that was started to promote better understanding of mental health and to support the wellbeing of everyone in the local community. The charity runs a weekly drop in and Let’s Talk Epsom. It also organises the Epsom Mental Health and Well-Being Festival, an annual week-long event which brings people together, regardless of their background, to understand one another, to celebrate each of us, to learn and laugh and offer support and love.
We might not have the big budgets of some of the national charities, but what we lack in funds we make up for in passion. If you’d like to know more, come to an event or offer your help or support then do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
We’re part of the Local Community Fund

End Stigma Surrey Survey
Time to Change Surrey is the local campaign and programme to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health and more information about it can be found on the website Time To Change Surrey – Let’s end mental health discrimination in Surrey (endstigmasurrey.org.uk). There has been a change of provider for the anti-stigma service in Surrey and to help target the service to where it is most needed, we have developed a survey.
We want to hear from people with experience of mental health problems (either direct or indirect e.g. as a carer, family member, friend), about any stigma or discrimination they may have faced, or may face.
The online survey takes about 10-15 minutes and is available to complete by clicking here. Or by pasting this link into the url bar www.surreysays.co.uk/iai/end-stigma-surrey-survey/

Life in Lockdown 2020
In March 2020 the Monday drop in met for the last time before Lockdown. We agreed that we would keep in touch by a weekly newsletter. This was good, but something more was needed to help pass the days and the weeks and the months… And so the idea of a ‘Life in Lockdown’ book came into being. It was an opportunity for everyone in the group to create something good and permanent from a challenging time.
The book tells the Lockdown stories of those who felt able to take part.
You can view the book by opening on the following link.
