The Diocese of Härnösand (Swedish: Härnösand stift) is a diocese of the Church of Sweden, established in 1647, formerly being a part of the Diocese of Uppsala. Covering Jämtland County and Västernorrland County, it uses the Härnösand Cathedral as its seat.

In 1904, the northernmost parts were broken out, establishing the Diocese of Luleå.
