Welcome to Thurrock Mind

We are a mental health charity that helps people living in Thurrock, with mental health problems.

We are a mental health charity founded in 1980, and since then have been developing and delivering high quality services with, and for, people with a mental health problem living in Thurrock.
We are affiliated to Mind and work in partnership with Thurrock Council, Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group, our NHS providers and other local voluntary, community and faith groups.
We want to make sure that everyone who experiences difficulties with their mental health gets the respect and support they need, at the time they need it and for people who are likely to develop mental health problems, to stay well.
We provide a range of services together with information and advice on mental health problems.

“In the few months of volunteering with the Advocacy Team at Mind in Thurrock, I have discovered and learned so much about how people live with mental health problems. It has been an eye-opening experience and has changed my perspective on mental health.”

Rebecca White

A great course, presented well in a friendly environment with a lot of input from others. Made me realise I’m not that different from other people.
