for better mental health

Coronavirus: we're here for you

All of us are worried about coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it will affect us and those we love. We are still here to support you and to make sure everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.   

Coronavirus and your mental health

Our information hub provides advice on how to support your mental wellbeing during this period. This includes practical advice on coping with staying at home, tips for employers on supporting yourself and your team, and updates on how the new coronavirus laws could affect your rights. If you're a young person struggling at this time, we've also got some information for you.

We need your help more than ever

As we start to feel the impact of coronavirus on our mental health, it is incredibly important that we take action now. Demand for our vital support and services will grow – and we must be equipped to meet it. However, many of our fundraising events have understandably been cancelled, and all of our shops are closed. We need your support now more than ever.

Our virtual fundraising ideas 

The impact of coronavirus on our mental health

We ran a survey to find out how the coronavirus pandemic was affecting people's mental health, to help us understand how we can support people during this uncertain time. Our findings show that new mental health problems have developed and existing mental health problems have worsened.

Urgent winter support package

As we go back into lockdown, those of us severely affected by mental health problems are at risk as we struggle to access vital services, food and benefits to help keep us well. We’re asking Government for a package that makes sure that everyone gets the support they need.

Your local Minds 

Local Minds have adapted the way they provide services following government and NHS advice. This means that most face to face services can no longer take place in person. Many are now running telephone helplines with extended hours. Others are moving to use online platforms and video conferencing so they can connect directly with anyone who relies on their services. Contact your local Mind directly to find out more.

Our head offices

Our head offices in London and Cardiff are now closed because of the coronavirus outbreak. We can't open your letters or acknowledge postal donations, so we ask you not to send anything by post right now. You can still donate online and any letters you have already sent will be kept safe until we can reopen the office. If you have questions, get in touch with our supporter relations team.

Our Impact

At Mind, we're here to make sure that no one has to face a mental health problem alone. We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we built and launched our coronavirus information hub. This hub has received over 1.7 million views since its launch in March and our new information resources for children and young people have been viewed over 62,000 times.

Our Infoline and Legal Line have remained operational throughout the pandemic and responded to over 35,000 calls, texts, and chats, and the numbers of new people signing up to Elefriends has increased from over 122,000 accounts in March to over 132,000 in June.
