About us

Brecon and District Mind supports people in the community affected by mental illness and distress.  We are here to help.  We do this by providing high quality services to promote good mental health and well-being.

Brecon and District Mind has been awarded the Mind Quality Mark (MQM). The MQM is a robust quality assurance framework created by Mind, the mental health charity.

MQM sets out the baseline of best practice and legal compliance in all areas of a local Mind’s governance and activities. To achieve the MQM, a local Mind must meet or exceed all 24 key standards.

Local Minds undergo a rigorous assessment which includes a thorough appraisal of organisational policies and procedures as well as a visit and interviews with trustees, staff, volunteers and people who use services. MQM is awarded when all standards are fully met.

The MQM provides assurance that local Minds across England and Wales are well-run organisations who meet Mind’s expectations of good practice, and in many cases excel beyond those expectations. It provides assurance that they are healthy, ambitious and strong in providing the highest quality support to people experiencing or at risk of developing mental health problems.



Brecon and District Mind is part of the voluntary sector and provides services that complement those provided by other statutory and voluntary agencies.

We welcome anyone during our open access sessions.  We offer a wide range of healthy activities, courses and workshops designed to support and empower people experiencing mental distress to move towards recovery.

We provide our services in four places within the Brecon Beacons National Park in mid-Wales, our centre in Brecon, Hay-on-Wye, Talgarth and Crickhowell.

The people who make use of our services are at the heart of the  organisation. Our services are delivered by an experienced and friendly team of people, staff and volunteers. These are overseen by the board of Trustees/Directors and supported by an active Friends group.

We are here to help so why not call in for a friendly chat and a cup of tea or check out our recent Programme of Events and what’s on notices  to see what activities and events we are running.
