About Us

Below you will see some of the people who have been part of Hartlepool and East Durham Mind over the last years, helping to build and change the organisation and making sure we stay true to our roots.  Built on a human understanding of people and their context we work across a range of activities, projects and partnerships to support wellbeing across Hartlepool, Durham and beyond.  We believe in individuals as part of, and dependent upon, local communities and our larger society.  We don’t exist in a bubble, we are connected to others in all kinds of different ways and we need each other and a healthy way of living and being to grow and thrive. 

Here at Hartlepool Mind we are committed to working with and alongside individuals and communities, recognizing the amazing strengths and assets we all share and using them to build better ways to be.  If get involved with our work just get in touch, maybe become a peer supporter? a volunteer? or apply for any vacancies that look interesting to you - we look forward to meeting you soon
