Wiltshire Mind is a local independent Mental Health Charity based in Melksham and provides County-wide services. We are a voluntary organisation affiliated to Mind, working towards a better life for people diagnosed (or not), labelled and treated as mentally ill.
Established in 1993, Wiltshire Mind runs the following core services and other projects:
Six Peer Support Group Centres (drop-in) at Chippenham, Devizes, Malmesbury, Trowbridge, Salisbury and Melksham and a professional Counselling Service based at our Head Office location in Melksham. In addition we provide specific support groups for Carers and Men. We also provide Mental Health Awareness training to support local businesses.
Our dedicated and professional staff and volunteers are committed to the personal care of vulnerable people with, or without, mental health issues. At Wiltshire Mind we are committed to helping our service users lead independent lives within the community, and where possible to undertake volunteering or training, and in some cases to return to paid employment.
Wiltshire Mind are a charity that relies exclusively on donations and fundraising to generate the income needed to provide our mental health services. We do not receive any statutory funding or funding from national Mind, so please donate to us if you can by clicking the “Donate” button. We really appreciate it – thank you.
