We're Your Local Mind. Our services support the mental health of thousands of people in Manchester every year.

From Tuesday 1 August 2023 we are marking Local Mind Week.

  • Local Minds supported more people than ever last year (2022/23). 422,450 people we’re supported by a local Mind (up from 403,797 in 2021/22).
  • Local Minds provided 1188 unique services last year
  • Local Minds employed 5,468 people last year (full time equivalent)
  • 427,201 people volunteered at their local Mind last year
  • 877 trustees provided support at board level

We’re #YourLocalMind

Last year, we marked our first ever Local Mind Week to recognise all the work done by #YourLocalMind.

We believe that no one should face a mental health problem alone. So here at Manchester Mind we support local people to feel valued and improve their mental health.

What does #YourLocalMind do?

Even though we are all one big family and work alongside national Mind, Manchester Mind raises funds independently to help support the mental health of people in Manchester.

We’re proud to be part of the Mind family. We share knowledge and ideas. And nationally, Mind helps to support our work, but there are unique benefits to #YourLocalMind.

Being local, means we understand our community – so we provide responsive mental health services that meet changing local needs. We believe in the power of listening and being heard, so we can offer the right support for people in Manchester. Last year we supported over 6,300 adults and young people.

Help us to do more locally by making a donation or fundraise for us. Supporting #YourLocalMind means your donations have a direct and very real impact on our community here in Manchester.

Throughout the week we will be sharing stories on our social media channels, so please help us spread the word about the work we do. Thank you.
