About us

We’re Mind Aberystwyth, the mental health charity based in Aberystwyth and working across Ceredigion

Mind Aberystwyth Mission Statement

Our vision is a community that promotes and protects good mental health for all, and that treats people affected by mental distress fairly, positively and with respect. The needs and experiences of people affected by mental distress drive our work and we make sure that their voice is heard by those who influence change.

We provide information and support and develop local services for people affected by mental distress, including their carers, family, friends and supporters. Through the service we provide, we seek to make it possible for people affected by mental distress to live full lives, and play their full part in society.


Mind Aberystwyth is an independent registered charity with a Board of Trustees made up of local people who are committed to delivering our aims and objectives. We are affiliated to Mind, the mental health charity that operates throughout the UK and across Wales as Mind Cymru.

We hold our Annual General Meeting where Members of Mind Aberystwyth have the opportunity to attend the meeting, to discuss Mind Aberystwyth’s services in the previous year.

Our Values

Informed. People with experience of mental distress drive all we do.
Diversity. We respect everyone’s experience and inclusion is at the heart of our work.
Partnership. We are committed to working with Mind and its networks, with our local network and all who will help us achieve our mission.
Integrity. Our independence ensures our integrity – we are never compromised.
Determined. We will never give up challenging discrimination and campaigning for
better mental health.

Public benefit and aims

We have referred to the guidance contained in the Charity Commission’s general guidance on public benefit when reviewing our aims and objectives, and in planning
our future activities. In particular the Trustees consider how planned activities will
contribute to those aims and objectives.

We work to create a better life for everyone with experience of mental distress by:

  • Advancing the views, needs and ambitions of people affected by mental distress, including carers, family, friends and supporters
  • Influencing policy through our involvement in the planning, development and review of local mental health services
  • Challenging discrimination and promoting inclusion
  • Developing quality services which reflect expressed need and diversity;
  • Achieving equal rights through the creation of opportunity

Mindful employer

Mind Aberystwyth is a Mindful Employer and we have signed the Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health.
