About us

Cardiff Mind is a mental health charity originally constituted in June 1963, however, in March 1993 the company was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee and in May of that year was again registered as a Charity with the Charity Commission.

Cardiff Mind is based in the heart of Cardiff, and operates an open referral system which enables potential service users to not only access services via Statutory Sector Routes such as Health and Local Authority but also from Third Sector Partners and most importantly from the individuals and their carers.  Our only criteria is that people should be aged over 18, are Cardiff residents and are or have been experiencing difficulties with their mental health.

We currently employ a team of 38 staff and have the support of around 40 volunteers. We are an independent charity affiliated to Mind (National Association for Mental Health) and are part of a network of 200 Local Mind Associations across England and Wales.

We have a track record in developing and delivering quality services to people experiencing mental distress, and we want to ensure that those who need the support of mental health services are provided with sufficient opportunity to engage with appropriate and diverse services, and also tackle accompanying factors that contribute to social exclusion.
