How do we make a difference?
We change minds across England and Wales by making mental health an everyday priority. By standing up to the injustices – in healthcare, in work, in law – which make life harder for those of us with mental health problems.
We support minds – by offering help whenever you might need it through our information, advice and local services.
And we connect minds. Bringing together an unstoppable network of individuals and communities – people who care about mental health to make a difference.
Watch the video below to learn more about who we are, and what we stand for.
Get information and support
When you're experiencing a mental health problem, supportive and reliable information can change your life.
We empower people to understand their mental health and the choices available to them through:
"Mind was such an invaluable source of information. I can't put into words how helpful they were for both of us."
Find your local Mind
Our local Minds offer help and support to those who need it most. There's more than 100 local Minds across England and Wales, offering specialised support and care based on the needs of their communities.
Help us campaign for change
We believe everyone with a mental health problem should have access to excellent care and services. We 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, legal rights and employment.
Mental health training in your workplace
We can help bring about real change, end discrimination and promote good mental health through our workplace training and consultancy.
We offer a range of training packages, including face-to-face sessions, eLearning courses, and our Workplace Wellbeing Index - a benchmark of best practice for workplace mental health.
Depression Alliance has been supporting people with depression for almost 40 years. Raising awareness and campaigning to improve attitudes towards depression has been central to Depression Alliance's work.
On Monday 1 August 2016, Depression Alliance merged with Mind to continue providing its Friends in Need wellbeing network and online community as well as its 60 self-help groups.
