The Queen's Golden
Jubilee Award

Station House - home of Wokingham Mental Health AssociationWelcome to the Wokingham Mental Health Association Website. We hope that you will have a very informative and enlightening visit. Founded in 1988 as Wokingham & District Mind, we were affiliated as a Mind local association in 1989 and we became a registered charity in our own right in January 1995. In 2001 we changed to the name of Wokingham & West Berkshire Mind.  In July 2004 we decided to disaffiliate from National Mind and we then renamed to the title of Wokingham & West Berkshire Mental Health Association. We are now known as the Wokingham Mental Health Association serving the Wokingham locality.

From our humble beginnings in 1988 we have progressed steadily and successfully through the years, earning a respected place in the local voluntary sector, reflected in the now six "Civic Awards" we have received from the local community. These accompany other national awards earned by us during the now twenty years of our existence. More recently we were one of the first charities to receive The Queen's Golden Jubilee Award. The Lord-Lieutenant of Berkshire, Sir Philip Wroughton presented the Award to our charity on Tuesday 15th July 2003. We were one out of only 200 voluntary groups to receive this major new Award for voluntary service by groups on the community in 2003. To understand what sets Wokingham & West Berkshire Mental Health Association apart from many other mental health associations you should visit our Philosophy page. Wokingham Mental Health Association is a genuinely user run association and all our volunteers work on entirely on a voluntary basis allowing us to offer a variety of services on a very small budget.
