• We are really proud of everyone who had the courage to speak about a topic that the media and the public are often afraid to confront - sucide. We are especially proud of our young voluteer who has interviewed on the special news broadcast, which highlights the issues surrounding sucide. 

    We believe in talking about issues like this. Talking can help people to feel like they are not alone and can ask for the help they need, and that's what we're here for. Talk to us

  • Our powerful new film about the Work Capability Assessment (WCA). In the film, actors depict the experiences of people who are supported by Tyneside Mind and have been through the WCA. Many people find the process of going through the WCA difficult and distressing, and this is very much reflected in the film. As people continue to find the WCA process stressful, insensitive, inaccurate and unfair - it needs to change.

    Warning. This film contains references to suicide which you may find triggering.

  • Last Sunday a team of VERY brave friends of Tyneside Mind did a zip slide over the River Tyne. The zip slide starts from the Newcastle side of the bridge and travels diagonally across the River Tyne for 230 metres before finishing at HMS Calliope on the Gateshead side. Yep, that's right for 230 metres! That's one long zip slide! 

    We want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to the fearless team who took on this daunting task just to raise money for us here at Tyneside Mind, and raise money they did - a whopping great £3,000 of it! People in our local community impress us every day with how much support they offer us, so a big thanks, the money will make a massive difference.
