Weʼre raising £500 to Fund the running and expansion of Lighter-Minds UK mental health peer support groups and online self-help database.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Lighter-Minds UK was founded as 'Mind Space MK' in Milton Keynes, April 2019, run at the Unity Park Station every 2 weeks by co-founders and best friends Charlotte Appleby and Ray Haiden. They undertook suicide prevention training with mind, self-funding the launch of their community group. The founders run bi-weekly sessions, online support, self-help resources, crisis line (e-mail, phone and video chat). Lighter-Minds UK tries to source speakers with personal or professional experience in Mental Health. They also provide free refreshments and snacks. Collaborating with other mental health organisations such as Rethink, Mind and Mind Allies has helped provide resources such as access to mindfulness apps (CALM), volunteer training and sports' equipment from Sport England.
