What we do
When my daughter was diagnosed with schizophrenia it was a very distressing time for both of us. Mind was such an invaluable source of information. They talked me through the various options available for my daughter and they sent me some booklets which we found really easy to understand. I can't put into words how helpful Mind was for both of us...
What we do
We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Information and support
Supportive and reliable information is vital. When you're experiencing a mental health problem, it can change your life.
We believe in empowering individuals to understand their condition and the choices available to them. We do this through:
- Our Infoline which offers callers confidential help for the price of a local call
- Our Legal Advice Service which provides information on mental health related law to the public, service users, family members/carers, mental health professionals and mental health advocates
- Our award-winning publications and website, now certified by the Information Standard.
Communities and networks
Mind provides help and support directly to those who need it most.
Our network of more than 160 local Minds offer specialised support and care based on the needs of the communities they support.
Mind members are at the heart of everything we do. Join and we'll keep you up to date with opportunities to shape our work.
We're currently developing national and local peer support networks for anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
Campaigning for change
We believe everyone with a mental health problem should be able to access excellent care and services. We also believe you should be treated fairly, positively and with respect.
We campaign on a range of issues that could affect anybody with a mental health problem. This includes health services; legislation; protection of legal rights, and employment. Join us to campaign for change.
Professionals and lay people with high levels of awareness and training in mental health issues are essential to bring about change, end discrimination and promote good mental health for all. Mind offers a range of national and local training and consultancy services. These include: Mind Workplace - training to develop mentally healthy offices; applied suicide intervention skills; Mental Health First Aid; bespoke training sessions; a programme of conferences and seminars.
Mind is independent - please support us if you can
Mind is a charity. We rely upon donations to continue our work.
Our broad base of funding from the public, from trusts and from companies – but never pharmaceutical companies - gives us integrity. It means we can stand up and speak out on the issues that matter.
Support Mind to help us keep our independence.
