We offer high quality services to local residents seeking mental health advice and support. Our services include, counselling, advocacy and wellbeing workshops.
Mental health problems can happen to anyone and most people recover. We are committed to raising awareness of mental health issues and to tackling the stigma and discrimination that is often the biggest barrier to recovery.
We support service users in their recovery by working with patients, families, carers, children and young people, professionals, and those with undiagnosed mental health conditions.
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.
We work in partnership with Haringey Borough Council, Haringey CCG/NHS and we are committed to collaborations with other community and voluntary organisations.
As a local Mind and part of the Mind charity federation we receive quality assurance inspections in order to continue to be part of the federation and maintain the Mind ‘quality mark’. We have very good relationships with smaller mental health charities within Haringey and neighbouring London Minds.
