Harrogate Mind is a member-led service open to anyone aged over 18 who suffers from any kind of mental health disorder. We offer a friendly environment where members can join vocational and educational groups or simply enjoy the drop-in service. We have strong links with all other mental health services in the area and have surgeries for housing and benefit enquiries.
We are currently open three days per week (including Bank Holidays) and our aim is to provide a welcoming and supportive environment to all our members as well as the opportunity to be involved in the organisation of the service.
