Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales.
We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
On a local level, our network of over 160 local Minds provides a variety of services, tailored to the needs of each community. They are independent charities that share Mind’s values and adhere to quality standards. We have over 1,600 services across England and Wales and last year provided direct support to over 285,000 people. Services on offer include supported housing, crisis help lines, drop-in centres, counselling, befriending, advocacy, and employment and training schemes.
Nationally, we ensure that people with mental health problems have their voices heard, and are treated fairly, positively and with respect
We also provide support to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Mental Health, together with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Rethink Mental Illness.
