Thank to our wonderful York Mind volunteer's
CEO Alyson Scott thanks York Mind volunteers
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

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.
Our occasional and regular volunteering and fundraising opportunities are a great way for you to get involved with the work that we do here at York Mind. A massive thank you goes out to our past, current and future volunteers and fundraisers - we really couldn't`t do it without you!
