Mind in Bradford is a local branch
of Mind, the mental health charity.

Mind in Bradford was set up more than 30 years ago by a group of service users who were looking for more mental health and wellbeing support.

The organisation became affiliated to national Mind but is still an independent charity which relies on its own resources to provide award-winning local services.

Our aim is to promote mental wellbeing across Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven and to help people experiencing emotional and mental health problems towards recovery and a better life.


Our local services are free and include:

Guide-Line – a telephone support service manned by trained staff and volunteers. You can call them on 01274 594594 between 12pm-9pm every day

Sanctuary – an evening safe space service for those in crisis which can be an alternative to hospital admission. Referral is through First Response on 01274 221181

Wellbeing – free groups to help you recover, learn coping strategies, boost your self-esteem and find new friends. No referral or diagnosis is required.


1:1 Support – we have recovery workers based at three GP surgeries in Bradford who are ready to listen and support you. These evening appointments are available to people in the Bradford district aged 11+

Hearing Voices: We are Bradford’s first Maastricht interview centre, offering this innovative new way of finding strategies to cope with hearing voices
