  3. About Us

We have been working in Hillingdon since 1984 and became a listed Charity in 1995.

Working for better mental health, in Hillingdon

Over 80% of our staff, volunteers and trustees have their own lived experience of mental health problems; their experiences bring our work to life and make our services and support stand-out. All of the staff live or have lived or worked in the Borough, so have local knowledge and understanding of the needs of people in the area.

How do we support people within the community?

We do this by providing a range of clinically proven services that improve wellbeing, aid and sustain recovery. We also provide training, information and corporate partnerships to breakdown stigma and increase mental health awareness.

We support people with mild, moderate, severe and enduring mental health needs. We fundraise and work in partnership with individual donors, volunteers, businesses, the public sector and other charities to deliver change.

Mind in Hillingdon is embedded in the local community and exists to meet local mental health needs. Through our various projects, staff and volunteers, we provide high quality, individually tailored services so people can live full lives and be connected to other people in their communities.

When you’re experiencing ill-mental health you’re still you. That’s why we do all we can to help people living with a mental health condition get on with their lives, no matter how their mental health affects them.
