Who We Are

Norwich & Central Norfolk Mind is the leading mental health charity in Norfolk and we are affiliated to National Mind.  We were established in 1966 by a group of people what who wanted to greatly improve mental health care in Norfolk, by challenging the traditional large institutional model that was dominant at the time.  The group led by the UK’s first female Psychiatric Social Worker, Cicely Mc Call, MBE, established the first group homes in the country.  We have always tried to maintain this courageous and pioneering spirit at the heart of what we do.
