Rochdale and District Mind

Welcome to Rochdale and District Mind (Including Bury and N.E.Lancs)

Please note:  All our non-advocacy services are funded for residents living in the Rochdale Metropolitan Borough area (including Rochdale, Heywood and Middleton).  We are commissioned to provide a mental health Advocacy service in Rochdale and Bury. For further information about services in Bury, please see our Wellbeing directory here

We provide information and support, campaign to improve policy and attitudes and in partnership with independent local Mind associations, develop local services. We do all this to make it possible for people who experience mental distress to live full lives and play their full part in society.

Our mission is to provide information and support to empower people experiencing mental health problems.  We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.

Our network values underpin all that we do:  Together we are open, responsive, independent and unstoppable

Our vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all and that treats people with experience of mental distress fairly, positively and with respect. 

The need and experience of people with mental distress drive our work and we make sure those who influence change, hear their voice. Our independence gives us the freedom to stand up and speak out on the real issues that affect daily lives.

We hope that our website has provided the information or advice that you are looking for.
