Stockport Mind was set up by a group of volunteers in 1971 and is affiliated to National Mind, one of the leading mental health charities in England and Wales.

Stockport and District Mind works towards a society where anyone who experiences mental distress is supported in their recovery, empowered to reach their full potential, and they and their family/Carers are free from stigma and discrimination.

Did you know...

We receive no core funding from the national Mind charity - we are affiliated but financially independent, so must raise our own funds. This means that all donations to - and fundraising for - us supports our local, front line mental health services. National Mind do vital work on a national level.

We are celebrating our 50th anniversary year in 2021. The organisation has seen so many changes since 1971 but our core ethos of supporting people, empowerment and reducing stigma has always remained.

Stockport Mind supports hundreds of people each year, and we regularly receive feedback like "I owe my life to this service" and "the only place I have ever found an umbrella of help and support is Stockport Mind".
