Our history

Mind in Haringey was formed in 1974. The first service was a Sunday lunch club, run by volunteers which evolved into an activities centre. The initial vision was to ensure that local people with mental health problems could have somewhere to go for a hot meal and as a form of social support, meeting and mixing with other people.

Mind in Haringey has a strong reputation and throughout our history, we have been responsible as the main mental health organisation in Haringey and a focus for mental health services and the issue of mental health. We have good partnerships with Haringey Borough Council and Haringey NHS and we are committed to extending partnerships to deliver services. We are part of the wider national Mind charity federation and have support from Mind’s national infrastructure. We also have very good relationships with smaller mental health charities within Haringey and neighbouring London Minds.
