Do you know the difference between national Mind and a local Mind? Buckinghamshire Mind is a local Mind, so our services are unique to our area and we raise our own funds to deliver those services.


What is the Mind Federation?

We’re #YourLocalMind. We’re here to fight for mental health. For support. For respect. For anyone in Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire.

We’re part of a network of local Minds across England and Wales. We’re an independent charity and we raise our own funds. We have our own board of trustees, who are responsible for how we are run.

Being local, means we understand our community – so we provide services that people need locally. We’re proud to be part of the Mind family. We share knowledge and ideas. And nationally, Mind helps to support our work. Together we’re fighting for better mental health.

What local Minds do

Our mental health services help thousands of people each year. Being local means we understand our community – and we provide services that local people need.

We support people’s mental health in many different ways. We listen and give people time to speak about their concerns helping them find the right support.
