We’re here for you.

World Mental Health Day

10th October 2021

We believe we should live in a society where everyone has access to proper mental health support.
Over the last few years we have come a long way. But there’s still much more to be done. That’s why we are strengthening our support for people disproportionally affected by mental health issues; people from racialised communities, young people, and people living in poverty.
Because access to mental health support is still too often determined by where we live or who we are.

    Coventry and Warwickshire Mind supports

    Whatever your background and however you need support – we want you to feel welcome and supported here in Coventry and Warwickshire.

    We provide clear advice and information from sources you can trust and we can help you to find support in outdoor spaces and in the home, in schools and in the workplace, and in the community.

    Coventry and Warwickshire Mind wants to see change

    Because we know that sometimes people face waiting lists that are too long and are pushed into poverty because of mental health.

    We want to tackle the stigma that is still attached to mental health, to be more inclusive and to support under-represented minority and vulnerable communities, and we want to support young people who are struggling with anxiety and trauma.

    We’re here for you.
