Thank you for coming to the Crowdfunding page for All Minds Matter - a cafe where anybody can go to talk about their mental health, whether they are anxious, depressed or just in need of somebody to talk to.
My name is Vikki, and I am the founder of All Minds Matter. Since 2013 I have been diagnosed as having a mental health difficulty, however, my mental health was unstable for a long time before then. I am creating this cafe in my home town because I believe it is something that is needed, and something that I wish had been around when I was struggling with my mental health difficulty.
The main idea around this cafe is to give a safe space for people to come and talk about what is on their mind, whether they have a diagnosed mental health difficulty or not. I aim to provide the support and guidance for the volunteers that will be helping those that come into our cafe.
I hope that this project will help people to realise their potential, and provide the support that they need when they come into the cafe, when they need it. It will also aim to provide a non-waiting list system, and also a no-appointment system, so they can access the service when they wish to, on their own terms.
The money that you give to us will be used to train volunteers to be able to give the best possible service to the people that need us. It will also be used to rent out the space needed to provide this service, and eventually will go on to run our own cafe.
