National Mind

Washington Mind is affiliated to National Mind, the largest mental health charity in England with a network of over 150 local Minds. Last year local Minds worked with over 280,000 people running services across England and Wales. Services include supported housing, crisis helplines, drop-in centres, employment and training schemes, counselling and befriending.
