Mind in the Vale of Glamorgan is a charity that works with and for people with mental health problems, their carers and supporters. Mental health problems are very common and can affect anybody at any stage of their life.

Mind in the Vale of Glamorgan promotes positive mental health and offers a range of services to help people on their journey of recovery.
