Keep families in MIND …..

Keeping Families in Mind

This is an established and innovative service from Sheffield Mind, funded by the Ministry of Defence. It offers therapeutic support to the families of serving and veteran armed forces personnel.

We believe that family members are best able to support one another if they are able to access the help and support that they need.

“My therapist has been an absolute trooper and I would thoroughly recommend her to other families. She has given me the space and support I needed to heal,following some difficult times. I see more clearly what steps I need to take to help me move forward with more positivity. Thankyou very much for this support – a life saver” KFiM client
