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.

We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.

We are Mind

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.

We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We'll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner.

Mental health Information and support

When you're experiencing a mental health problem, supportive and reliable information can change your life. That's what we do. We empower people to understand their condition and the choices available to them through the following:

  • Our Infoline, which offers callers confidential help for the price of a local call.
  • Our Legal Line, 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 information, certified by the PIF Tick.

Take a look at our Information and Support section for more.

"Mind was such an invaluable source of information. I can't put into words how helpful they were for both of us..."

Local Minds

Our local Minds provide help and support directly to those who need it most. There's a network of around 125 local Minds across England and Wales that offer specialised support and care based on the needs of the communities they support.

Membership and networks

Our members are at the heart of everything we do. Join us and we'll keep you up to date with opportunities to shape our work.

We're also developing national and local support networks for anyone experiencing a mental health problem.

Find us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with what we're doing - and how you can take part.

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.

Professional training

We can help bring about real change, end discrimination and promote good mental health for all through our training and consultancy. We offer a range of national and local services including workplace training to develop mentally healthy offices, applied suicide intervention skills, Mental Health First Aid and bespoke training sessions.

Depression Alliance

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.
