Mind in Greater Manchester

We are Mind in Greater Manchester. A partnership of five local Minds working together to ensure people experience better mental health and to support people with their mental health to live well and feel valued in their communities and at work. We support everyone to develop potential by empowering individuals. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone.

Who we are

We are working harder together to achieve better mental health for everybody. We are:
