About our trust

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust provides mental health care to those people living in Birmingham and Solihull who are experiencing mental health problems.

We serve a culturally and socially-diverse population of 1.2 million spread over 172 square miles, and have an income of over £200 million, making our trust one of the largest mental health foundation trusts in the country.  At times, we also provide services to people who live further afield because of some of the specialised services we provide.

Our trust has over 4000 dedicated staff who are continually working to get people better and challenge the stigma associated with mental illness. Our trust operates from a number of sites in a variety of settings, from community based mental health teams through to acute wards and day centres.

Our Trust also has its own charity, Caring Minds, which directly raises money for the service users, carers and staff of the Trust. Caring Minds helps to provide the extras that normal NHS funding does not provide, such as equipment, specialised furniture, research and service users events.
