We are an innovative and experienced provider of mental health services in Mid Hertfordshire and have our well being centres in St. Albans, Stevenage, Hertford and Welwyn Garden City. As both individuals and as an organisation we are committed to providing high quality services for people of all ages.
Mind in Mid Herts would like to thank the owner of Fishy Delishy St Albans & Cheshunt, Mr Akkaya, for all the time he invested in running a charity day on our behalf on 7th April 2015. We are extremely grateful for his support and the £450 raised will go towards continuing our much needed support.

National Mind have launched a great new programme for our blue light services…
”We know that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year. But our independent research shows that the estimated quarter of a million people who work and volunteer in the emergency services are even more at risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the general population, but are less likely to get support.
Need advice on your mental health or wellbeing? Call, email or text our Blue Light Info-line; just for emergency service staff, volunteers and their families. We can provide independent and confidential support, advice and signposting.”

A big thank you to BSV Jazz Band who at a recent concert raised £990 for the purpose of buying a piano for the St Albans Centre. The sum raised was much greater than their target and some additional musical items will be purchased. The music group at St Albans will have use of the piano and similar groups are held at both Stevenage and Hertford.
