Tyneside & Northumberland Mind exists to promote positive mental health, providing flexible, responsive and sustainable support services. We put people first by involving service users, carers and local community. We do all this to make it possible for people who experience mental distress to live full lives and play their full part in society. We offer a range of services based on the Recovery model where all services are focused on improving and enhancing an individual’s wellbeing, based on the principles and practices of person centred planning and self-directed support.

Our services are based on the principles of Wellbeing, Recovery, Resilience and Prevention.
