Welcome to Worcestershire Healthy Minds
We support people, aged 16 and over, who are experiencing problems such as stress, anxiety, low mood and depression. We are a free, confidential service offering a range of talking therapies and support including short courses, online therapies, and self-help guides.

1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. We can offer a range of local therapies that can help with stress, anxiety and depression. Click here to find out more.
We are proud to support ‘Sons of Anxiety’ a new podcast produced by Stew Kingscott and Justyn Surrall from BBC H&W who open up about their own battles with stress, depression and anxiety. They have teamed up with Dr Ben Rogers, Trust Lead for Psychological Interventions to investigate why men struggle to talk to each other about their mental health…and what happens when they do.
