We won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.

Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest is driven by the needs and experiences of people with mental distress.

Part of the community since 1980, we aim to empower people with experience of mental ill health, through the delivery of innovative, collaborative services, developing mental wellbeing, resilience and recovery in the boroughs we serve.

We provide information and support, campaign to improve policy and attitudes, and develop local services in partnership with professionals and clients.

We take a holistic approach, with a range of services:

  • for those in immediate need, taking action to secure people's rights through advocacy, welfare rights and advice and by supporting young people in police custody

  • for those needing help to sustain their wellbeing, such as talking therapies, mindfulness and a range of Wellbeing Activities

  • for those seeking to build skills to aid recovery, by reducing social exclusion through education and support into the workplace
