That this House congratulates Mind on its 60th anniversary; pays tribute to its valuable work and many achievements over 60 years speaking out on behalf of and furthering the interests of people with experience of mental distress; notes that it typifies the organisation that its celebrations will champion the voice of mental health service users and advocate forms of user involvement that are not merely cosmetic but actually give people control of their own lives equal to that of other members of society; further notes that Mind's anniversary activities include developing with service users a touring arts project to challenge and develop public and political understanding of mental distress, launching an updated resource pack `Some things you should know about user/survivior action', by Peter Campbell, explaining the origins, aspirations and achievements of the service user movement, holding a service user conference in September, celebrating 21 years of user involvement and setting the agenda for future action, and publishing `Moving on from depression', by Claire Rayner, a book for people experiencing depression, their friends and relatives, with information and guidance based on the experiences of people who have had depression and found effective strategies for moving on; wishes Mind well for all these activities; and looks forward to a future in which Mind's vision of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all, and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect, has been achieved.
