Mind provides advice and support to those experiencing a mental health problem, and campaigns to improve services and raise awareness and understanding of mental health.
Mind campaigns for mental health awareness, providing mental health training through a network of around 125 local Minds across England and Wales that offer specialised support and care based on the needs of the communities they support, such as counselling, supported housing and peer support groups.
How You Can Help
There are multiple different volunteering roles available through mind – in charity shops, in your local Mind office or as an ‘Information Volunteer’, reviewing Mind’s resources. Apply to become a Mind Campaigner to be involved in lobbying politicians, sharing information and building pressure for change in your local area.
If you are between the ages of 11 and 24, you can join Mind’s Youth Voice Network to help the voices of young people be heard in Mind’s work.
If you have experience of mental health conditions, you can create a vlog on your experience for hosting on Mind’s website, or become a media volunteer, willing to share your story with journalists writing on mental health.
Make a single or monthly donation, or give via online shopping with Amazon Smile, eBay for Charity and the M&S Sparks reward scheme. You can also fundraise, either for yourself or in honour of a loved one.
You can also become a member of Mind for £26 per year (or £6 if you are unemployed, receiving benefits, retired or a full-time student). Members will receive a quarterly magazine, regular eNews updates, the chance to vote for trustees or become one yourself and other exclusive extras.
