We are a mental health charity, formed in 1984, and continue to go from strength to strength, evolving and re-structuring as the need arises, reflecting both the needs of mental health service users and the community we serve.
Our projects are delivered by dedicated, professional staff and we also acknowledge the tireless support of our volunteers and students on placement who work alongside us.
We operate from two buildings adjoined by a garden. Our main building (8 Woodside) is an impressive grade 2 listed Georgian building. The Mind Parkside building (6 Woodside Lane) is to the rear of the property and can be accessed via our main building and through the garden.
If you have the time, why not visit Freedom Fields Park? Not only does it have impressive views of the surrounding area but it is full of history. It has been landscaped and refurbished through the Heritage Fund. It is also the location of – The Cafe In The Park -our community cafe which is run completely by volunteers. This is open most weekends throughout the year and also on a daily basis during the summer. A range of snacks, hot and cold drinks is served.
Plymouth & District Mind staff work closely with all levels of mental health professionals, community organisations and networks to improve the quality of life for those with mental health problems, and also to promote positive mental well being. We are members of the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce and have provided mental health awareness training to some of their members.
As a mental health charity, we cover the areas of Plymouth, South Hams, West Devon, North Cornwall and Caradon, as far as catchment is concerned.
