Mind Jersey has received a £6,100 donation to help it offer support, training, and visibility into mental health in Jersey.

The donation from local software development company XRM, whose most recent projects include developing software to help financial services businesses make digital filings with the JFSC, is of particular importance in a challenging year for charities that are facing an increase in demand for services and a reduction in income from fundraising activities.

Hugo Forrester, Operations Manager at Mind Jersey explained: “Nobody is immune from the stresses and challenges of life, but 2020 has shown us how unpredictable life can be.”

“Some people cope better with this kind of disruption and uncertainty, but Mind Jersey has seen an increase in people coming forward and asking for support in dealing with these challenges and the effect it has had on their mental health.”

Every penny raised by Mind Jersey stays in Jersey.

Hugo added: “These donations enable us to offer support, training, and visibility to the area of mental health and assure people that we will not stop our work until we see a society that promotes good mental health for all and treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect.”

XRM Founder and Director, Simon Jackson, said: “We’re fortunate to work in a sector that has been in high demand over the last six months which makes it more important than ever for us to support our wider community. Mind Jersey is doing really important work in our island and the whole team at XRM is really pleased that we can make a contribution to promoting good mental health for all.”
