Anxious MindsAnxious Minds was founded in 2015 stemming from the CEO’s personal experiences with PTSD, anxiety and depression. This gives us both a detailed understanding of the reality of mental health and a passionate desire to improve the situation.

Our passionate mission and commitment at Anxious Minds is to improve the mental well-being of the people we serve here in the North East. We work towards a strong set of core values and principles that are upheld in everything we offer. Fundamentally we believe that individuals who suffer from Mental Health do not receive enough support. We started this charity in order to address this and provide better support.

Sufferers can often feel utterly isolated and lonely, believing that there is something wrong with them. This is not the case. Mixed anxiety and depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain. One of the aims of Anxious Minds is to connect individuals together, to take a positive step into a community of individuals who want to help.

We believe that everyone deserves to receive exceptional mental health support. Our goal is to provide individuals with the opportunity to participate in their own recovery, in a safe and supportive environment. We strive to empower individuals to take control of their own mental well-being and improve their quality of life.

One of the key ways we achieve this is through our drop-in centres. These centres provide a welcoming and non-judgmental space for individuals to come and talk about their mental health without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. We offer a range of services such as counselling, therapy and support groups, as well as access to information and resources to help individuals take control of their mental well-being.

In addition to our drop-in centres, our trained staff can provide information, advice and emotional support, as well as signposting to other relevant services in the area.

We also have a team of experienced and dedicated volunteers who work hard to ensure that our services are accessible to everyone. They are passionate about helping others and their dedication and commitment are vital to the success of our charity.

At Anxious Minds, we understand that everyone’s experience of mental health is unique, which is why we offer a flexible and tailored approach to support. We work with individuals to understand their specific needs and provide the support that is tailored to their individual circumstances.

We understand that mental health issues can be overwhelming and difficult to cope with, which is why we are here to offer support and guidance. We want to break the stigma around mental health and provide a safe and welcoming space for individuals to talk about their mental well-being.
