What we do

Ystradgynlais Mind is a Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Centre providing a service for the people of Ystradgynlais and the surrounding Western Valleys.  It is rooted in the local community, addressing local need at local level.  We particularly welcome the involvement of people who, themselves, have experienced mental and emotional distress, as well as their families, friends, carers and supporters.

We offer high quality services to promote good mental health and emotional wellbeing for the whole community.  We are aware that the community and the individual are intrinsically linked; therefore, we aim to provide services that fully connect the individual with the community and vice versa.

Iíve been a member here for almost a year.  Itís been a great benefit to myself in many ways.  Not only have I made some lovely friends, I am able to make use of counselling and a wide variety of advice.

We have built strong partnerships with other local and national organisations to facilitate the improvement of all aspects of peopleís lives.  Collaboration with other organisations enables us to provide an holistic service thereby reducing the impact of mental and emotional distress.  We also aim to improve the individualís experience of mental health services.

Ystradgynlais Mind works towards raising awareness locally of the importance of mental health and emotional wellbeing.  Through education and awareness raising events, we tackle the discrimination and stigma faced by people who experience mental and emotional distress.

Those with learning disabilities/difficulties are also welcome, once we have ascertained whether they need a carer to accompany them.  Mind has a comprehensive factsheet about learning disabilities and mental health, aimed mainly at students and mental health professionals.
