About Us

The Kaleidoscope Plus Group

Diverse and inclusive mental healthcare

Originally established in 1973 as the Sandwell branch of the mental health charity Mind, we have been providing crucial mental health services to the community for almost five decades.

In 2013, as part of a drive to increase the reach and diversity of our support services, we rebranded as The Kaleidoscope Plus Group. We are constantly striving to provide a holistic approach to mental health services, ensuring support reaches those who need it most, no matter who or where they are. 

Our award-winning staff, directors, and volunteers are passionate about what they do. We are dedicated to ensuring no one falls through the gaps, supporting national mental health services with diverse, inclusive and high-quality support.

1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England.

Our mission

Whether it’s group counselling for those bereaved by suicide, out-of-hours mental healthcare, or residential home support, our mission is to ensure high quality care to those who need it within the community.

Our aims

We are dedicated to promoting independence, supporting inclusion and ensuring community integration. We regularly hold events and campaigns to raise awareness for mental healthcare.

At #TeamKPG, we’re committed to using our voice and the voices of our dedicated ambassadors and partners to normalise self care, challenge stigmas, and promote a positive opinion of mental health and wellbeing.

We’re aware of the barriers that many groups face, and aim to make accessing support easier for men, BAME, and LGBTQ+ individuals.
