We know the effects of COVID-19 on the populations mental health and wellbeing are likely to be profound and long-lasting. Yet in this turbulent time, we have witnessed the importance of supporting one another and the essential role of community.

From Friday 26th - Sunday 28th February 2021, we hope to create our own virtual community with the Mindstep Lockdown Relay. Each volunteer will be given a 1-hour time slot to complete an activity of their choice (walk, run, swim, cycle, row, hop, crawl etc.) before passing the virtual baton to the next volunteer!

We hope that each volunteer will aim to raise £50 for Mindstep, but you can raise as much or as little as you would like. It's more important that we engage as many people as possible.

You can sign up and join the relay here!


The Mindstep Foundation has been established in memory of Max Davies, who tragically died by suicide in 2018. Mindstep funds postgraduate research at the University of Glasgow into the causes of suicide. Most recently, the charity has funded the largest UK study into the effect of the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns on mental health.

By funding research into the causes of suicide, and working to raise awareness of both the warning signs and consequences of mental health conditions going untreated, the Mindstep Foundation aims to break the stigma attached to admitting, confronting and dealing with mental health issues.
