Many people with mental health difficulties can find it difficult to understand and access the complex benefits system and to get the support that they need. They can sometimes be treated unfairly and without respect because of a lack of understanding about mental health. At Mind in Salford, we strive to ensure that everyone with mental health difficulties has access to support and that they are treated fairly and with respect.
You can find out more about our advice services by calling 0161 710 1070.

Universal Credit is due to be rolled out in Salford on 26th September (25th July for Higher Broughton). If you are unsure about what Universal Credit is or if it will affect you, read Salford City Council’s guide here.
