About us

Lambeth and Southwark Mind is an independent local charity working for the well-being of people in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark who are experiencing any kind of mental distress. We provide information and support, and we campaign for better services.

The majority of us involved in running Lambeth and Southwark Mind have experience of using or receiving mental health services of various kinds ourselves.

We manage our affairs independently through our management committee, which is elected annually from our membership. We employ three members of staff who are supported by a team of volunteers.
