We regret to announce that Mind in Bradford must temporarily close our waiting lists for support from the Know Your Mind and Know Your Mind Plus services. This means we cannot accept new referrals for those services for now.

Know Your Mind supports children and young people in the Bradford central area who are struggling with their mental health and wellbeing.
To access the Know Your Mind service you must live, go to school in, or attend a GP surgery in postcodes starting with BD1 up to BD9, not including BD4 or BD6.
