Depression Alliance has merged with Mind

This website is no longer being updated

We're Mind, the mental health charity. We provide advice and support to anyone with a mental health problem. We're continuing to run Friends in Need and to support Depression Alliance's self-help groups. We can offer you advice and support on depression, too.


We believe that effective partnerships are an essential factor in securing the future of Depression Alliance and our Friends in Need community.

We have and will always want to develop partnerships with public, private and community sectors to create new opportunities, reach more people and improve the sustainability of the Depression Alliance.

Our current partnerships include:

The Insurance Charities
The Insurance Charities generously supported the design and build of the Friends in Need site.

The Charity for Civil Servants
Our partnership with The Charity for Civil Servants provides a specific community to connect with other people working in a similar environment.

The London Borough of Southwark
We are working with health providers and the Borough Council to develop a Friends in Need project in the borough.
