Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. We work to create a better life for everyone with experience of mental distress by:
- advancing the views, needs and ambitions of people with mental health problems

In all our work we promote our values: informed, determined, diversity, integrity and partnership.
Mental health problems can affect anyone, rich or poor, young or old, shattering the lives of those affected and the lives of the people close to them. One in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives.
