In a Nutshell
Sheffield Mind is an independent charity (no 276108) and a company limited by guarantee (no 1336352) and was set up in 1971. We are part of a large network of over 170 local Mind associations across England and Wales which are affiliated to Mind nationally (mind.org.uk).
We believe that good mental health is fundamental to living a healthy and fulfilling life and to having positive relationships with those around us. We recognise the close link between physical and mental health and offer a range of services and support to enable people to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. We also believe that everyone can do a lot to improve their mental health and we promote self help and empowerment as a route to prevention and recovery. By providing support tailored to each individual's need we can help people overcome their difficulties, become more emotionally resilient and more able to cope positively in the future.
Sheffield Mind is governed by a Board of Trustees with services delivered by a team of staff and around 50 volunteers. We are committed to putting service users at the heart of all we do, both in determining their own care and support and also in how we plan and run our services. We are committed to tackling discrimination that people with mental health difficulties can face - for more information visit Time to Change.
