This is an important message to all of our stakeholders and beneficiaries regarding the status of Mid Essex Mind and the services that it provides. During the past year we have been working closely with Colchester Mind to ensure the high standards of care and support could be maintained throughout a difficult financial period for the voluntary sector.

We are pleased to be able to inform you that following a successful interim period of working together, Colchester Mind completed on an acquisition of Mid Essex Mind. This means that all services will continue with alternative additional provision being offered across the Mid area over time.

Please be aware that this website will no longer be updated and information can be obtained from the Colchester Mind website donations will need to be made via that link and then by clicking on the Just Giving button.

There will be a period of time whereby not all information maybe current, however all telephone numbers remain the same and can be used for information requests should the need arise. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and we will update you as things develop further.
