Mind in Somerset
Mind in Somerset is your local mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’re here to make sure anyone in Somerset with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support. Our vision is to promote good mental health and champion a greater understanding of mental health issues in the community. We are affiliated to national Mind but we receive no funding from them to support the services we deliver in Somerset.
Mind in Somerset resulted from the merger of Minds in Taunton/West Somerset and South Somerset in Oct 2018. For a long time the two charities had been working closely together and it became clear that in order to serve the whole community of Somerset we would best succeed as one, sharing our services across the whole county. Mind in Somerset has offices in Taunton, Yeovil and Bridgewater.
We provide a range of services including both support groups and one to one support. Mindline is is an out of hours helpline in Somerset that is a confidential listening service providing a safe place to talk if you, or someone you know, is in distress. When our lines are busy, or closed, our switchboard can connect you to our sister service, the Samaritans. More information about all our services can be found on our website mindinsomerset.org.uk.
