Mind
We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem.
But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling to get the support they need. Still unable to access the services that could change their life. Still facing prejudice and misunderstanding.
Mind believes no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’ll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner. And we’ll push for a better deal and respect for everyone experiencing a mental health problem.
Through our network of local Minds we provide direct support to almost 250,000 people each year.

What are the different Psychological Professions? 
There are many significant differences between psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy and other related professions. Each deals with different types of problems. But there is also some overlap and similarities in their work as the brief description of each profession below shows.
Some psychiatrists and psychologists also train as psychotherapists because they see the advantage of combining the different skills involved.
Psychiatrists are qualified medical doctors, specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. They can prescribe psychiatric medication.
Clinical/Counselling Psychologists are social scientists who study behaviour and mental processes. Psychologists provide, administer and interpret psychological tests and assessments and treatment. They undergo specialist postgraduate training to qualify in psychological – or ‘talking’ – therapies. They are not medical doctors and do not prescribe drugs. Clinical psychologists work in similar ways to psychotherapists, although they may use a variety of methods including psychometric tests, interviews and direct observation of behaviour to assess clients and decide on therapy options.
Psychotherapists (UKCP Accredited) undergo a four-year, postgraduate, in-depth and experiential training in how to work with a variety of people with a wide range of emotional distress, mental health issues and difficulties. Psychotherapists are trained in one or more of the psychotherapy approach.
Psychotherapeutic Counsellors (UKCP/BACP Accredited) are counsellors who have trained to a UKCP recognised standard and are competent to practice to the highest standards of counselling.
Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (Guided self help) (IAPT Trained) have attended a one- year post graduate certificate training program and provide Cognitive behavioural based interventions and guided self help treating people with mild to moderate depression and anxiety disorders. These coaches can practice after receiving relatively short training, although some have many years of experience.  It is generally accepted that CBT coaches provide shorter-term guidance.
Hypnotherapist (MNCH Acc.) apply hypnotic techniques in such a way as to bring about therapeutic changes. TheTherapist assists in activating the inner resources of the Client in order to achieve realistic goals. The problems that Hypnotherapy is best help with fall into the following broad classes: Thoughts, Phobias, Feelings and Habits but can help with a huge range of Issues. MNCH accredited hypnotherapists have been in practice for a minimum of three years.
