Our History

Birmingham Mind was founded in 1962 as the Birmingham Association of Mental Health. It changed its name to Birmingham Mind in 2008.

From the beginning it has maintained a concern with improving the lives, opportunities and choices open to people living with mental distress.

It currently provides services in, and beyond, the boundaries of the City of Birmingham.
