Welcome to Mind In Taunton & West Somerset

Mind in Taunton & West Somerset is an independent mental health charity which has served the local community since 1982.

From that time our objectives and values have been to promote good mental health, to encourage greater understanding of mental health issues, to provide high quality support and to enable genuine service user involvement and consultation in the development of all mental health services.

We deliver these objectives by offering a wide range of emotional support services including 3 out of hours helplines, a wide spread of support groups, anti-stigma campaigning work and much much more.

We are a well-established and respected organization that has close working links with a number of other local agencies
