Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest is driven by the needs of people experiencing mental distress and we won't give up until everyone gets both support and respect.

Part of the community since 1981, we aim to empower people with experience of mental ill health to develop mental wellbeing, resilience and recovery in the boroughs we serve through the delivery of innovative, collaborative services.

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

We offer a broad range of services:

  • for those needing help to sustain their wellbeing and build resilience, we offer talking therapies, mindfulness and a range of Wellbeing activities within the City and Hackney Wellbeing Network

  • for those seeking to build skills to aid recovery, we provide education and support into the workplace and help to reduce social exclusion
