The autumn edition of the Membership News is now available

One of the (many) benefits of being a Mind member is that you'll receive a quarterly Membership News magazine. The magazine is packed full of mental health info and Mind updates, member and celebrity interviews as well as interviews from those working in the mental health sector. There's also helpful tips and advice from our information and legal teams.

Below is a sneak peek of what you can find in the autumn edition. To get the full magazine, become a member and we'll send a copy with your welcome pack.

Meet our members

Our membership magazine is written for and about our members. In every edition, members share their stories, experiences and successes with us. In the autumn magazine, our members share their experiences winning our member short story competition, their thoughts on creativity and member Gaynor shares her experience of anxiety during her pregnancy and the exhausting depression once her daughter was born.

"The nights in particular held a real terror. When the sun went down, I’d get the sense of going into battle again. ‘Am I going to get any sleep? Will my baby get to sleep’?"

A Day in the Life

In each edition of the Membership News, we interview people from various professions within the mental health sector.

This autumn, we speak to Rachel who works in the marketing team at Mind but also runs weekend training courses as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor. She takes us through the delivery of one of the courses which helps people recognise and respond to the signs of mental health problems in young people.

"After the break we watch a video featuring a young man with psychosis. It's a subject a lot of people are very confused by, so hearing a first-person experience is very valuable."

 

Celebrity interview

In every issue of the magazine we talk to celebrities about mental health. This time Youtuber Grace Victory discusses the impact of living life in public - and explains why she's fallen out of love with the website where she found fame.

"Like a lot of people I had unhealed trauma. You use things to escape and detach from yourself, because if you're actually with yourself you can feel like the pain and the rage are going to consume you.

Just like people turn to alcohol and to drugs, I think social media can be used in that way too. There were times when I did that, just scrolling for hours, but actually that overstimulation of the mind would make me feel really anxious and ungrounded."
