Get involved with Dudley Mind
As a small independent charity, Dudley Mind relies on local support to help to provide its services to those in need. You can help to support the charity in a number of ways. One way is through volunteering.
1 in 4 of us will experience some kind of mental health distress in our lifetime.
We need more people who understand and are willing to support others who are struggling with mental health distress. If you are looking at this page then it is likely that you want to help. So thank you for considering us as your help will make a big difference. Your time and expertise is greatly appreciated.
