York Mind's wide range of services help individuals as they recover from a variety of mental health conditions.

York Mind is a leading local provider of services supporting individuals recovering from mental ill-health to achieve outcomes that will progress them towards recovery, social inclusion and integration in mainstream activity such as learning, volunteering or employment.

We believe that the condition does not define the individual. To that end, we campaign to raise awareness of mental ill health and combat the stigma surrounding mental health conditions. York Mind aims to be an inclusive and accessible organisation, emphasising the importance of acceptance and tolerance of the beliefs, opinions and wishes of our clients.


One in four people will experience some form of mental health problem during their lifetime


In the UK someone takes their own life every 90 minutes


25% of drugs prescribed on the NHS are for a mental health problem

Our services support adults and young people to speak to us about their lives as a whole

Through one-to-one and group based support, we help adults and young people to build independence in coping with mental health struggles.   Our services are confidential and prioritises listening to adults and young people, shaping the support to fit their needs wherever possible.
