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. You can read more about our work in our latest impact report.
Our local services are free and include:
Guide-Line – an online and telephone support service for all ages, manned by trained staff and volunteers. You can call them on 08001 884 884 between 12pm-12am every day. Alternatively, you can chat with us online.
