About Beautiful Mind
FIGHTING STIGMA, SPREADING HOPE Beautiful Mind is a registered charity in England and Wales with the objective of promoting social inclusion and confidence building. We believe that everyone deserves respect in the society irrespective of their past, disability, illness, race, education, religion, sex and sexual orientation. Often times people have been judged and condemned simply because they have not measured up to standards set by others. This is very common among the Black Minority Ethnic group. We work with this group to educate and sensitive on the benefit of correcting in love, discourage stigmatization and judgemental attitudes and the need to have a beautiful mind towards others. There is also an opportunity for one to one counselling.
The team recognizes that the human brain is able to relate more to people’s experience and live stage dramas. These tools are effectively put into use during our meetings with our service users. We have evidence to show that these are effectively changing the way the people in the community relate to one other. We also organise media training in the area of radio production, presenting, photography, videography, scriptwriting to provide job/volunteering opportunities and to promote team spirit of service users so that they can be employable. Our weekly radio show is educative, interactive and soul lifting. It is a platform where we talk about issues that the BME consider as taboo and are not normally discussed publicly.
The aim is to let people know that they are not alone, that they do not need to suffer in silence when help is readily available. This programme comes up every Wednesday from 5 - 6:30 pm UK time on Peace and Joy radio (Find us on TuneIn radio app). We also broadcast live on our Youtube and Facebook page.
