The Mind of My Own app is a quick and easy way to let your social worker know your thoughts and feelings.
- Download the app to your smartphone or tablet or go online at www.mindofmyown.org.uk. You can log into your account or sign up for an account if you do not already have an one.
- To register for an account you must have an email address. If you don’t have one, speak to your worker and they will support you to use the app.
- You can choose from a range of options including preparing for a meeting, sorting a problem or sharing good news.
- You will be able to select from a list of options and add your own comments.
- You can then send your comments directly to who you choose to send it too.
Who will see my statement?
You choose who your statement is sent to, however it does also stay on the Mind of My Own dashboard and will be saved to our case management system.
Will my worker reply via the app?
No, Mind of My Own is a one way system. Once your worker receives your statement they will contact you via phone or they will set up a visit.
How quickly will my worker receive my statement?
Statements are allocated every working day. They won’t be picked up over a weekend or on an evening.
I have a serious problem - what should I do?
