Vale of Clwyd Mind Association

Welcome

To Vale of Clwyd Mind, our exciting new ‘all singing, all dancing’ website that can provide information on training courses, social events, supported housing, ongoing projects and lots more that we hope you will find informative and interesting. 

We offer county-wide services designed for, and often delivered by, people who have lived experience of mental health problems.

Vale of Clwyd Mind (VOCM) is affiliated to National Mind, the leading mental health charity in both Wales and England. We were established over 26 years ago and since that time we have worked with and supported numerous adults experiencing the widest range of mental distress.

We have a number of support and social groups dotted around the Denbighshire area, offering a huge range of activities for those who wish to get involved.

What makes you smile, even on a really bad day?
Let us know and we will add it to our Virtual Whiteboard. Click the button (left) to see what makes other people smile too.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for our new website please do not hesitate to contact us.

Watch The Samaritans' "U Can Cope" Video

      U Can Cope features compelling stories of surviving suicidal thoughts, with commentaries from Dr Alys Cole- King, a leading clinician in the field, and Professor Stephen Platt, an eminent academic in this area.

Open Minds Alliance CIC, Samaritans, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Southwick Media Consultancy are leading the U Can Cope campaign to support and promote the 2012 World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) on 10th September.

Musical Meatballs in Mind 

Are a members-led music/performance therapy group for adults living with mental health issues. We are able to offer a safe environment for self-expression, creativity, camaraderie and a sense of belonging, allowing us to further challenge the stigma surrounding mental illness through public performances on a larger scale.

We hope to educate local communities and the general public and challenge the stigma and negativity associated with mental health issues. We are motivated by the desire to overcome the limitations that society has placed upon us by sharing our love of music and performance.

Many of our group members are able to  demonstrate through performance, song and dance how we have overcome adversity to share our personal stories and to showcase the strength and talents we've discovered, all while providing quality entertainment.

Providing opportunities for social interaction, empowerment, and self-worth for a marginalised group of people whose talents too often go unrecognised.
