Torfaen Mind helps to support and inform people in the local community who experience mental health problems, or who may have relatives, carers or friends of someone who experiences emotional distress.
At least one in four people will, at some time in their life, experience an imbalance in their mental health. Our aim is to help people to help themselves get the support they need.
We provide a number of services such as a Drop in centre, Outreach, Counselling, Floating Support, Day Activities, Outreach and Supported Housing.
Drop In Centre
The concept of the Drop-In Centre is at the heart of our aims and is the social hub of the daily activity of Torfaen Mind. In line with our ethos of self help, members are encouraged to join in with all decision making processes involved in the running of the Centre and the programme of activities.
Counselling offers you a safe “No strings attached” environment that allows you the space where, in partnership with your counsellor, you can explore your feelings and situation.

Providing temporary accommodation with support to provide residents with the confidence and ability to sustain a tenancy with success.
