Join the Friends

The FRIENDS is a local support group attached to Brecon and District Mind.

The organisation was established to raise awareness of mental health problems which can significantly affect many people from all walks of life. It is often said that one in four of us could experience some form of mental distress during a lifetime, and many people have enduring mental illness that has to be managed rather than cured and can result in difficulties in all aspects of life. Hopefully raising awareness will also help to reduce discrimination against this often invisible illness.

To this end the Friends organise a programme of events, approximately once a month. The events vary from informative talks on issues related to mental health , often held at a local hostelry, with the option of supper afterwards, to social events,  fairs and walks.

Do come along to one of our events as a visitor or join as a member (£10 single, £16 Couples per anum) and pay a reduced price for each event thereafter. There are three ways you can join:

  •  Email the Friends for further information at
  •  Download an application from here (not yet available)
  •  Or you can join by at any of the events if you just want to come along

The Friends has a  full Programme of Friends Events throughout the year
