• Well, what an absolutely brilliant AGM we had yesterday! There's so much to talk about we don't even know where to start!

    First up we are proud to annouce that local MEP Jude Kirton Darling become the first ever patron of Tyneside Mind yesterday. We are so, so pleased to welcome her on board, so a massive thank you to her for coming to our AGM and speaking to everyone.

    Next up - we were thrilled to announce our Mind Mood App will be launching on Monday! This is an exciting time for us as this is a brand spanking new system that can be available to all, and aims to help users track their mood, see patterns of behaviour that effect mood and share well being tips and advice. We'll share abit more about this with you on Monday, and hope you can all sign up and begin using it then.

    More exciting news comes as yesterday we were able to agree that Tyneside Mind will be getting a name change! Once we've crossed the T's and dotted the I's we will be looking at calling ourselves 'Tyneside and Northumberland Mind'.

    Lastly, we were delighted to welcome Paul Farmer to our AGM yesterday. Paul is CEO of National Mind and spoke to us about how well Mind is doing and how brilliant everyone is. 

    This really was the best AGM we think we've ever had, and we were so impressed by the turn out and that people gave up their time to be there. Once again we want to say a big thank you to everyone who is involved with Tyneside Mind, all our fabulous volunteers, staff and fundraisers. Like Paul said 'This is only possible if we all work together as a team'.

  • Designed to remove the barriers to employment, the Talent Match programme works with young people aged 18-24 who are not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET). Our Talent Match groups have been going really, really well and we've had lot's of engagement with young people around Tyneside.  

    With this in mind we will be starting a new group for Talent Match young Adults from the 12th Nov at the YMCA North Shields.

    Cooking on a budget!

    Recently we were lucky enough to welcome Ian Mearns to Tyneside Mind. Ian Mearns is the local MP for Gateshead and he agreed to attend our cooking on a budget session, where he spent the day cooking a pasta dish with our 'foodies'.

    Tyneside Mind’s Cooking on a Budget group, which takes place in Bensham, helps the service users who live on low household incomes cook cheap nutritious meals to prevent them relying on fast food. The charity have found that there are evident links between mental wellbeing and an individual’s diet, the Cooking on a Budget group therefore works to maintain good physical health in order to promote good mental health.

    Ian has always fought to raise awareness of the challenges our clients face and there is no better way to understand these challenges than to participate in a Tyneside Mind group. We we’re all very excited about his attendence none of us has eaten a meal cooked by a Member of Parliament before!
