About Mind in Salford
Who We Are
Mind in Salford is an independent, user focused charity providing vital services to make a positive difference to the wellbeing and mental health of local people.
We represent the voice of Salford in campaigning to dispel stigma and influence political, social and cultural change around mental health.
Above all, we put individuals first and are deeply committed to helping people struggling with their mental health get both support and respect.
Since 1972, Mind in Salford has been providing mental health and wellbeing support to the local community, working to reduce mental health stigma.
Over the last 50 years Salford has changed a lot, and so have we! Our team has grown over the years to support more people in our local area, with new services and projects offering help to thousands of people in new and innovative ways. Throughout this, we have been committed to helping people struggling with their mental health and wellbeing get the support and respect they deserve.
We have been lucky enough to have many thoughtful and generous supporters over the years, who have helped us to continue this vital work. Every volunteer, fundraiser and supporter has been a part of our movement for positive change, creating a kinder, fairer world without mental health stigma, where everyone’s wellbeing is valued and taken seriously.
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.
Mind in Greater Manchester
We are also a part of a partnership of five local Minds called Mind in Greater Manchester, working together to ensure people across our region experience better mental health. We empower individuals to develop their potential, and want people to live well both in their communities and at work. We believe no one should face a mental health problem alone.
