Sheffield Mind was founded in 1978, so we’ve got 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 de-stigmatise mental health conditions 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 our partners to improve services and increase awareness and accessibility. 

We are a creative and forward thinking organisation and we have been working hard to reach people in communities which have traditionally failed to engage with services, but in which there are higher than average incidences of mental ill health. We have built new and exciting partnerships so we can promote greater awareness and understanding of mental health to different sectors and we look forward to developing these relationships and to working in shared projects and initiatives.
