Mind chief accuses independent projects of hidden commercialism

Some mental health projects are hiding behind their charitable
status to conceal the commercial nature of their business, Mind
chief executive Richard Brook claimed.

He told delegates that some independent projects were “trying to
con us” and might let down users because they did not stick to
their values.

Brook said service providers were preoccupied with expanding their
services rather than meeting the needs of users and that the
government’s social inclusion agenda was “sinking like a stone”.
