Who we are
MindSpace Stamford was founded in 2015 by Dr Dan Petrie, a Stamford GP passionate about mental health and wellbeing. We are now supported by a group of local trustees.
We believe in creating an empathic community where all citizens are valued for their innate humanity and are able to flourish.
Our aim is to increase the knowledge and understanding of mental health. To provide ways to prevent ill health and help those who may be suffering from illness through better conversations.
By upskilling people in the ways we interact day to day, we hope to create a more empathic community that can better support loved ones, friends, colleagues and neighbours, therefore decreasing the burden of loneliness, social isolation and mental ill health.
Board of Trustees
The MindSpace Board of Trustees consists of six local professionals with range of skills including a former headteacher, a marketing director, an accountant, a hospital doctor, a GP and a former nurse and non-executive director of the local NHS Trust. All trustees work for MindSpace on a voluntary basis.
Together the group has developed both an aspirational strategic plan and a detailed operational plan to guide their work and achieve their mission:
"Improving the mental wellbeing of the whole town of Stamford through a community approach"
