The History of Mind

Mind offers information and advice to people with mental health problems and lobbies government and local authorities on their behalf.

It also works to raise public awareness and understanding of issues relating to mental health. 


There are around 120 local Minds across England and Wales. Our History Image

Each local Mind is a unique, independent charity run by local people, for local people.

They are responsible for their own funding and services, but national Mind provides considerable time and money to assist and support them.


As separate organisations, the responsibility for the running of each local Mind is ultimately down to the local board of trustees.

Mind works together in partnership with local Minds to deliver excellent mental health services to anyone who needs them- find out more.

The History of Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind

We are proud to have been delivering high-quality mental health services based on the needs of local communities for over 40 years.


A group emerged in Denton in 1978 and called themselves Tameside and Glossop Association of Mind which became a registered charity.

In 2008 we became a well-being service and re-registered as Tameside Oldham and Glossop Mind, as well as becoming a Company Ltd by Guarantee.


In 2013 the Company articles were amended to reflect an emphasis on holistic well-being and to remove our area of benefit.

Our mission is to continue to provide the best quality local mental health services in prevention, early intervention and primary care; alongside empowering individuals and our communities to live well.
