Welcome to Mind, the mental health charity

Mind works to improve the lives of people suffering from mental health problems.  We are here to make sure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support.

Our vision, our mission, our values:

Our vision is that of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect.  Social inclusion is at the heart of everything we do.

Our mission is to provide information and support to empower people experiencing mental health problems.  We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

Our network values underpin all that we do:  Together we are open, responsive, independent and unstoppable.
