Geographical remit: 


Sheffield Mind is an independent charity which provides support and advice to individuals living with mental illness. We provide a range of recovery focused services including free counselling, group art and drama therapy, bespoke support work, help with accommodation and independent living and a Mind and Body programme designed to promote the links between physical and mental wellbeing.

We encourage peer support and try where possible to engage users in the development and delivery of our services.

One of our principal objectives is to help individuals manage their illness by providing the support and information required to allow them to live independent and productive lives. Statistics indicate that one in four people will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime and we want to make sure that everyone in the city regardless of economic, geographic or social status can access essential services.
