1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem. We believe no-one should have to face this alone. We provide a range of both one-to-one and group based services, which enable individuals to continue their lives with a variety of mental health conditions. Anyone can self-refer into our services, without a diagnosis, to access activities such as Counselling, Befriending, Mental Health Training, Peer Support & Therapeutic Groups, Young People’s support and Mentoring.
York Mind was formed in 2011 following the merger of 2 charities (Our Celebration and York & District Mind). Together, the two charities have over 70 years of mental health experience in York. We’ve been supporting friends, families, employers, colleagues and the community. But we still have work to do. And we can’t do it without you
We’ve put together a shopping list of where your donated money goes to:
£10 will pay for the costs of one of our volunteers for a week. Volunteers are vital to York Mind, and enable us to help many more people than relying on paid staff alone.
£26 will pay for an hour of one-to-one Counselling. York Mind delivers a range of Counselling approaches including CBT, Integrative Counselling and Gestalt Therapy.
£424 will fund monthly Befriending socials for 6 months in York. These informal group gatherings complement the one to one befriending sessions, and can encourage long lasting friendships to form between group members.
£571 pays for the costs of our Peer Support network for a month. We have several groups catering for people of different needs, encouraging clients to share and support each other in a safe space.
£3200 would pay for 16 people to attend a 2-day ASIST Suicide Prevention course in the community. Delivered by York Mind’s experienced trainers, this course equips individuals to support people having suicidal thoughts.
£6164 will fund an accredited Arts Award Group for Young People aged 13 -16, for one year. The Arts Award Group allows individuals to explore different art forms over a period of 16 weeks, helping to build confidence and self-esteem in Young People
