Bath Mind were established in 1998 by a group of local people with lived experience of mental ill health who wanted to provide information and activities for people in the community. Since then they have worked hard to develop what they do in response to local needs. Many of the current staff have lived experience of facing mental health challenges; they have a greater understanding of the community that they support.
They are in contact with over 3,400 people annually to improve, prevent and maintain mental health and wellbeing. While they are affiliated to national Mind, they receive no direct funding from them. We are a self – sustaining, independent locally run charity.
