Minds Matter is a charitable initiative of MCH Psychological Services and we recognise the impact that cancer and other life-changing illnesses can have on mental health and wellbeing.

MCH Psychological Services is as an Isle of Man registered charity and was formely known as The Lisa Lowe Centre and Manx Cancer Help. For over 35 years, we have provided vital emotional and psychological support to people of all ages and their families – helping them to cope with the emotional and mental health challenges associated with living with cancer or other life-changing conditions. We do so by providing a range of services from one-to-one therapies to specialist clinical support.

Our aim is to adopt a collaborative approach and work in partnership with other third sector organisations and local statutory services so as to diversify and widen the approach to the planning and delivery of psychological services on the Isle of Man. We are entirely funded through the very generous support of our local community as well as via grants and private trusts.

Each year, we need to fundraise approximately £500,000 towards our annual running costs as we do not receive any funding from the Isle of Man Government.

MCH Psychological Services is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and we follow current National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines.
