Mind in Bradford is an independent organisation affiliated to Mind (National Association for Mental Health) that works towards a better life for people experiencing mental ill health and distress. We operate both a drop-in service known as the Mind Drop-in and a telephone helpline service known as Guide-Line.
Trips out are organised to places of interest.
People are very welcome to ‘drop in’, please check the opening times and venue first. There will be staff and volunteers available then to chat to and answer your queries.
Queries about benefits
We are frequently asked to help with issues about assessments & benefits both over the phone and by email. We do not have the detailed training needed to help in such cases. Our remit is to offer emotional support to those going through such assessments.
Here is a list of alternative organisations/websites who do offer practical benefits advice.
Guide-Line is a telephone helpline offering information and support to those in mental and emotional distress, family members, carers and professionals. We support people on an on-going basis as well as those in crisis.
Our service is confidential and we are open every day including week ends and bank holidays from 12 noon to 9 pm. Our number is 01274 594 594. Please leave a message if you can’t get through and we will ring you back.
Guide-Line email service
Many people are not comfortable talking face to face or on the phone about their mental or emotional distress. Our email service will give you an opportunity to access support and information in privacy and safety.
