No one alone at Christmas - help us be there

Nadine Web Portrait 540X400

"Christmas and New year are the hardest time of year for me.

"Feeling like I have to join in and do what everyone else is doing, can make Chrismas a really dangerous time for me. I can become really poorly with all the stress and pressure and expectations on me.

"Mind have have been a lifeline for me at times like this."

If it wasn’t for Mind, I’d be lost, or I wouldn’t be alive to be completely honest with you.

How we make sure no one copes alone

A lifeline and a listening ear

It’s vital that everyone should be able to pick up the phone and talk to someone who understands. Our Infoline advisors give expert practical and emotional support.

Accurate information

From information about mental health problems and treatment options, to legal advice, our website can be relied on for much-needed accurate, helpful information.

Someone who understands

Mind’s supportive online community Elefriends means no one is ever alone - it's a safe place to listen, share and be heard, 24 hours a day, all year round.

People need Mind more than ever. Last December the number of calls to our Infoline was a third more than the year before. This year we’re expecting more people than ever to reach out to us - we're determined that no call goes unanswered and no one feels they have to cope alone.


Please keep donating and supporting Mind. You might not realise how much it means, but it means everything to me and to a lot of people - Nadine
