About us Our mission Our Mission Sheffield Mind was founded in 1978, so we’ve got over 40 years’ experience of providing mental health services to people in Sheffield. We’re a registered charity, and a company limited by guarantee. We’re affiliated to National Mind, but we don’t receive direct financial support from Mind. Although we’re an independent, autonomous organisation, Sheffield Mind is one of 130+ Local Mind Associations that have agreed to support the mission and values of National Mind and strive to reflect them in its governing documents, principals and its work. Our vision is that we won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect. We would like to see parity of care for people with mental and physical illness and to see mental health issues de-stigmatised, so people are not discriminated against. Our mission is to intervene early, to improve wellbeing and provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We work locally with a variety of partners to improve services and increase awareness and accessibility. Equality & Diversity Based in Sharrow but working citywide, we're part of a diverse local community. Wherever possible we identify opportunities to work with and learn from people from under-represented communities - in which there can be higher than average incidences of mental ill health - and to link with local groups. Committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in our work with service users, within the organisation (staff, volunteers and trustees) and in wider society, we're a creative and forward-thinking organisation who build new and exciting partnerships so we can promote greater awareness and understanding of mental health, to different sectors. We are always looking to developing new relationships and to working in shared projects and initiatives.
