What do we think about ourselves and does it make us feel?

Sheffield Mind staff Sally and Natasha decided to celebrate World Mental Health by creating a short film which explores the unique qualities of the human mind

They asked staff to record a positive and negative thought about how their mind’s worked and how they perceived the combined elements working together. The intention was to illustrate that we all have ups and downs and thinks that we would like to change but these are the things that make us individual.

The result is illustrates how people see themselves and what they perceive to be good and bad about the way they think and function.

Sheffield Mind Wellbeing Centre - available for hire

Most of you will be aware of that fact that we have relocated to new premises but you may not
be aware of the new facilities we have to offer.
A lot of time was spent designing a space that would be welcoming to service users and would provide appropriate accomodation for staff and visitors. In addition, we have various rooms and spaces that we have made available for hire, our training suite has its own catering facilities and can be used for away days, training sessions or interviews and we also have an art room which is a warm, bright and more informal meeting space and lends itself to briefings, team meetings and more informal social activities.

How you use the rooms is up to you - we hope that we have something for everyone and will be happy to discuss your needs.

Johnny Nelson joins Sheffield Mind in the fight for greater mental health awareness


Sheffield Mind today announces former world champion boxer Johnny ‘The Entertainer’ Nelson will be joining as an official ambassador of the local charity. Sheffield born Johnny, who held the WBO Cruiserweight title from 1999 – 2005, was inspired to get involved with the local mental health charity following feedback he received from fans after opening up about his own experiences on a recent Sky documentary.

Keen to promote the links between physical and mental wellbeing Johnny said, “I’m excited to be joining Sheffield Mind as an ambassador to support mental health awareness in my home city. I’ve personally seen how mental health issues have affected people in the boxing profession and my work with prison inmates has shown how failure to resolve issues such as stress, depression and anxiety in young life, can lead to issues later on with people, especially young men,making poor life choices.

“Prince Harry recently cited boxing as something he used to escape from the emotional distress he experienced following his mother’s death, and the links between physical and mental wellbeing have been widely documented. I’m keen to promote these links within my role as an ambassador for Sheffield Mind and do what I can to support the delivery and development of their services.”
