Temporary Waitlist Closure for Know Your Mind and Know Your Mind Plus

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.

This decision has been made due to the high number of referrals we’ve received. Our priority is to provide the best possible care to those in need, as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, our current capacity cannot meet this demand, and placing children on a long waiting list would not be appropriate.

We take this decision seriously and will review our capacity in November. Our goal is to reopen the services for new referrals as soon as possible. In the meantime, please note that children and young people can still access other Mind in Bradford and external services. Please see details in the “Get alternative support now” section below.

We have also produced some resource packs:

Self-care and coping resource

Support and resources for schools
