Mind in their own words:
We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem.
But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling to get the support they need. Still unable to access the services that could change their life. Still facing prejudice and misunderstanding.
Mind believes no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’ll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner. And we’ll push for a better deal and respect for everyone experiencing a mental health problem.
Through our network of local Minds we provide direct support to almost 250,000 people each year.
