The Kaleidoscope Plus Group provide mental health service to children, young people and adults on a national basis, along with bespoke mental health, wellbeing and suicide prevention training to individuals and organisations alike.
Established in 1973, the organisation was originally affiliated to the national mental health charity 'Mind', and were known as Sandwell Mind. In 2013 they separated from Mind, recognising that they wanted to focus on more than mental health conditions and it was important to them that they provided a holistic service.
Following consultation with colleagues and their users, they became The Kaleidoscope Plus Group, a name which represents what colleagues and service users believe they do, namely, bringing colour back into people's lives. They act to link lots of different services and people together in a creative and positive way and help to support people who work with them or use their services to cope with the ever changing face of life.
The long term aim of The Kaleidoscope Plus Group is to provide services on a national level and partner with other organisations to improve efficiencies and sustainability. They recognise that their colleagues are the key to providing quality services. They aim to to ensure that they are paid fairly in comparison to other charities of a similar size and that they are treated equally, included and feel valued for the contributions they make.
