North Tyneside’s silver volunteer award 2017

As you may or may not be aware Anxious Minds is run mainly by volunteers including our Chief Executive and sessional staff who work long hours for very little money, day after day to provide better mental health services to the people we serve in the North East.

In 2017 Anxious Minds became a multi award-winning charity and has supported with immediate access over 387 people in our peer support programme and around 150 in our counselling services.
