“Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

Francis of Assisi

Who We Are

The National Statistics Health Survey for England 2016 revealed that the prevalence of mental illness is higher in the North East than any other part of the UK. The North East currently has 33% of adults diagnosed with common mental disorders, which is the highest rate in the country, with only 22% in London and 23% in the South West. Because of this, the mental health services in the North East are being stretched to their limits and often service users have to wait anywhere from six months to one year to access free counselling and therapy services.

Anxious Minds is a charity that provides early intervention and long-term support for people with various Mental Health Conditions, specialising in those that suffer from depression and anxiety.

What We Do

Our charity provides this online support website, a full counselling service and education-based, peer support groups and workshops teaching people how to manage and overcome anxiety and depression in Wallsend North Tyneside

We also started The Hope Recovery Centre 2017 in Meadow-well providing counselling, workshops & CPD courses, Arts & Craft, Mindfulness and a gardening project.

We at Anxious Minds also recognise that there is no time limit on recovery, and aim to offer our service users long-term support where they can feel safe and comfortable to attend group sessions as and when they think is necessary.

Our programmes can be accessed on a self-referral basis, which can alleviate the pressure that comes with the stigma associated with mental health issues, which may have otherwise prevented them from seeking help.
