About us

We are York Mind

In recent years, advances in science and understanding have helped remove some of the stigma surrounding mental ill health. Despite this progress, those experiencing mental ill health daily face discrimination, isolation and exclusion. These difficult factors can lead to a loss of self-confidence, trapping the individual in a vicious cycle of illness, isolation, relapse and recurring illness.

Different name, same priorities

York Mind was formed in 2011 through the merger of the local mental health charities York & District Mind and Our Celebration.

We are an independent local mental health charity which aims to empower individuals experiencing mental ill health to start on the pathway to recovery. We believe that the condition should never define the person and consequently our recovery model encompasses every aspect of our clients’ lives: personal, social and professional.
