Keeping Families in Mind

Support for military families in South Yorkshire

Keeping Families in Mind is an established and innovative service from Sheffield Mind, funded by the Ministry of Defence. It offers therapeutic support to the families of serving and veteran armed forces personnel.
We believe that family members are best able to support one another if they are able to access the help and support that they need.

Who We Support

Our service is available to anyone who has a family member currently serving in or a veteran of the armed forces. This service is available to the families of personnel from all branches of the armed forces.

What we offer

We offer free, confidential counselling from a qualified (BACP registered) therapist.
We deliver individual and couples therapy as well as movement therapy

The service is flexible in its delivery; we can see people in our offices throughout South Yorkshire, at community venues or visit people in their homes. We also offer telephone counselling and video counselling via zoom.

Support groups

We run monthly groups across South Yorkshire. Our support groups encourage peer support and provide people with the space to talk and be heard, as well as to listen to others. Groups are open to families.


We organise a Family Fun Day every year with information stalls, children’s activities and a football tournament.
The event is intended to bring families together and promote greater awareness of services and support networks.
