Mind - The Mental Health Charity

We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’re here for you. Today. Now. Whether you’re stressed, depressed or in crisis. We’ll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.

Charity Registration No. 219830

Story

My father committed suicide when I was a teenager. He never spoke about his depression and never opened up to his family. Perhaps if there was less stigma about mental health, my father would have spoken up and could still be with us. 

Most people I know have had issues with stress, depression, social anxiety and other mental health problems. Mind's Time To Talk campaign is raising awareness and tackling how we discuss and treat mental health. 

I'm tackling a half marathon in memory of those we've lost, to help those still here, and to help me do something that helps my mental and physical health. 

Anything you can give is going to a great charity, so thank you for your support.
