Mind In Salford - For Better Mental Health

About Mind In Salford

Mind in Salford is an independent, user focused charity providing quality services to make a positive difference to the Mental Health of the people of Salford.

Mind campaigns for the improvement of statutory services and fights the stigma and discrimination that many people with experience of mental or emotional distress still face.

We try to involve our volunteers and users of our services in our work, valuing diversity, focussing on quality and following principles of social inclusion and recovery.

Our History

Mind in Salford was formed in 1972, initially primarily as a Mental Health Advocacy service, also providing mental health awareness training.

In 2011, Markus expanded the organisation, with the introduction of the mindfulness courses and the Garden Needs joint venture with Social Adventures, funded through the Big Lottery Eco Minds programme.

In 2012 we expanded the advocacy service to be a much more comprehensive hub, including over 60s and physical and sensory impairments advocacy, and, in partnership with Salford Being Heard, providing learning difficulties advocacy.

In 2014, we won and retained major funding streams to maintain both the advocacy and ecotherapy services.

In 2015 we greatly extended our services further, incorporating Independent Mental Health Advocacy services in Salford and Prestwich Secure Hospital and CAMHS service, and a Welfare Rights and Debt Advice service for people with mental health problems, following a merger with SMHSCAB.

2015 also saw us expand our community Advocacy Hub to cover the newly introduced Care Act advocacy. We also started teacher training for mindfulness, and expand our training services for organisations.

From April 2016 our Advocacy services will be expanded further, to include IMCA, NHS complaints and to take LD advocacy in house.

Our relationship with Mind

We are one of 133 Local Mind Associations (LMA’s), affiliated to national Mind, but responsible for our own funding and local service delivery.  Being affiliated to Mind allows us to exchange ideas and information with similar organisations throughout the country, and to participate in wider campaigns promoting mental health awareness.
