We are Sunderland Mind – an independent charity run by local people for local people.

We provide confidential, high-quality services for individuals, carers and families experiencing emotional or mental health problems. We aim to do this in a safe, caring, non-judgmental and supportive environment.

You can sign up to any of our services, they are open to all.

We welcome referrals from community, voluntary, statutory, private sectors and other agencies.

We’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch.


*Lockdown Update*

Due to the 2nd Lockdown and government guidance, Sunderland Mind will be closed from 4pm today (4/11/2020)

Your health and safety is really important to us, so we have been following the NHS’s guidance on how we should be responding to Coronavirus. In light of this advice, we have decided that we are suspending all face-to-face services to the public, including 1-2-1 support, all groups and activities. However do not worry, all staff have been working really hard to ensure that we can still provide the best support available to our community while working from home. We will still be offering various services via telephone, text and Zoom where possible as well as through email and our social media.

If you need to contact us, you can do so via 0191 565 7218, 07984595542 or admin@sunderlandmind.co.uk. We will be monitoring these a closely as possible and will make sure to contact you where we can.

Keep an eye on our social media as we will do our best to keep in touch with you at this difficult time.
