About Mind in
Harrogate District

We exist to provide a quality community-based service accessible to those who need support with their mental health and wellbeing.

Mind in Harrogate District is an independent local charity founded in 1973, affiliated with National Mind and the Mind Federation.

There are around 100 Local Minds across England and Wales. Each Local Mind is an independent charity run by local people, for local people. Each is responsible for its own funding and the services it provides, but all are affiliated to Mind. This affiliation ensures that each local organisation meets Mind’s quality standards of governance and service delivery, and that they work to further the shared mission.

Some of our programmes and activities are designed to work preventatively, some enhance recovery and others improve the quality of life for people with complex needs. They all encourage active engagement to help people keep learning, connect with each other and contribute to their communities. We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in our local community.
