Our virtual fundraising ideas 

Support for young people

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.

Online or telephone support when you need it most

Our helplines – the Infoline and Legal Line – have remained operational throughout the pandemic, and thousands of people have signed up to join Side by Side, our supportive online community.

The mental health consequences of coronavirus

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.

Remote mental health services

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.
