About us

We were founded in 1962, and are a Registered Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee, affiliated to Mind. If you would like to know more about our History, you can do so by downloading our A History of Birmingham Mind booklet.

Our board of Trustees  are responsible for ensuring that we meet our charitable aims and objectives.

Our well-trained and committed staff manage and deliver our range of services.

Our Services are individualised, person centred and deliver valued outcomes, as we passionately believe that everyone has the right to live lives that are meaningful and which enable them to reach their full potential as individuals. We have a well-earned reputation for excelling in our support and service quality and we play a key role in supporting and influencing the wider mental health system across our city.

We work in active partnership with a range of local organisations to deliver services and challenge the stigma that surrounds mental distress.
