Our information hub provides advice on how to support your mental wellbeing during this period. This includes:
"Mind have helped me in some of my darkest moments."
As the dire impact of coronavirus on our mental health becomes clear, it is incredibly important that we take action now.
Demand for our vital support and services is growing – and we must be equipped to meet it.
We need your support now more than ever.
We've spoken to lots of young people who've told us that coronavirus is affecting their mental health in different ways. In our information resources for children and young people, you'll find information and tips from others to help you cope during this uncertain time. There's also advice for parents and carers of teenagers who are worried about their child's wellbeing.
We heard from almost 12,000 people about their experiences during the pandemic and how they are feeling about the future.
We found that people who were more likely to struggle with their mental health before the pandemic have been most affected.
Whether you're a key worker, adjusting to remote working, wondering how to support staff caring for children or struggling with being furloughed, we're here for you.
Take a look at our resources to support you and your teams while at work.
During the pandemic, mental health services have had to change how they provide support to help stop the spread of coronavirus. We surveyed over 1,900 people about their experiences of getting support for their mental health from the NHS by phone or online. We found it has really worked for some people but, for some of us, it hasn’t – and at times it may even make our mental health worse.
Local Minds have adapted the way they provide services following government and NHS advice. The majority are again offering face-to-face support, while many have introduced a hybrid approach that continues to provide services virtually using online platforms and video conferencing. Contact your local Mind directly to find out more.
Our head offices in London and Cardiff are mostly working from home for the time being, but we do have reduced access to our offices. You can still donate online or send us donations and enquiries by post, but please bear with us as it may take a little longer to respond than usual. If you have questions, get in touch with our supporter relations team by emailing [email protected] or calling 0208 215 2243.
Thank you to all of the amazing individuals and organisations
supporting our emergency appeal.
