What we do at Guernsey Mind
Guernsey Mind is a charity whose aim is to support the people of the Bailiwick, encouraging a positive attitude towards mental health and wellbeing. Anyone can access our services at Guernsey Mind - you don’t need a referral. We don't diagnose, prescribe or provide medical guidance, but we can help you find some places for support.
We would encourage anyone who wants to talk, or is worried about someone they know, to contact us.

What to expect
Guernsey Mind is an independent mental health charity. All our services are funded through donations and private funding. We will never turn people away on the basis that they cannot afford to pay, but we would ask that clients make a financial contribution for each session where they are reasonably able to do so. A minimum of £15 and up to £50 is usually suggested. There are a number of ways to make a donation, and your therapist will explain these to you. As well as enabling us to continue providing services and supporting the work of Guernsey Mind, making a regular payment places a value on the service you receive.
We can offer free immediate access to our online mindfulness sessions and Decider Skills – if you would like us to arrange this then please let us know.
This is a self-paced online programme uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to teach children, young people and adults the skills to recognise their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours, enabling them to monitor and manage their own emotions and mental health.
Mondays and Thursdays 5.30-6pm - The Monday session is a mixture of discussion about mindfulness and how it may help as well as a short practice. The Thursday session is just a 25 minute practice. No previous experience required.
