Stream for Mind FAQs 

If you’ve got questions about taking on a streaming challenge for Mind, please take a look below.

Registration

To register, sign up here on our website.

Once that’s done, you’ll be asked to set up either a Tiltify or Just Giving page for your fundraising. This is an important step in your fundraising journey, so be sure to create that page right away.

Yes! We’ve given three options, but there’s always the choice to stream your own way and either choose a different challenge time or just stream your own way.

Simply sign up here instead if you’d prefer to do a different streaming challenge to the 5, 15 and 23 hour challenges.

Tiltify is an online giving platform that allows supporters to donate to a fundraiser’s stream whilst they are live.

Tiltify have integrations and features, including overlays and alerts that help maximise fundraising whilst streaming on websites like Twitch or Mixer.

This challenge is all about channelling the power of streaming. There are loads of other ways you can make a difference by fundraising.

To find out more about fundraising for Mind in a different way, have a look at our website.

Our streaming challenge is aimed at people who have streamed before, so it might be tricky for a first-timer. There are plenty of resources out there online to help you get started in streaming, and when you’re ready, we’d love for you to take on a stream fundraising for Mind.

If you don’t have access to the software or equipment needed for streaming, or it’s just not for you, we would still love to have your support. Head over to our Do Your Own Thing page if you’ve got your own fundraising idea to register it today.

We can send our fundraisers a Mind t-shirt for free. If you would like one, please let us know your postal address and which size you would prefer (S-XXL) by emailing [email protected]. (This inbox is monitored Monday – Friday 9am - 5pm)

Your streaming challenge

Yes! Your event is all about joining the fight for mental health, having fun and connecting with others, whether you’re getting a group together or streaming solo.

Find out more about setting up fundraising teams on Tiltify and Just Giving.

No, you’re free to pick the date and time that you’d like to hold your charity stream on.

Yes, absolutely. It’s important to make time to get up and move around. This is to avoid being sedentary for too long during a long stream or gaming session. To help with that, we’ve made some break screens that you can use during your stream.

While gaming is popular, there are plenty of other activities you can do while streaming. These include doing quizzes, crafts, chatting and more.

As a Mind fundraiser, please carefully consider what game you choose to fundraise with us. For example, keep away from content that may trigger those with mental health problems.

As an organisation, we don’t promote violence, sexual content or negative portrayals of mental health. As supporters of Mind, we hope you will be on board with that.

If you have concerns over the content of someone’s stream, you can let us know by emailing [email protected] (this inbox is monitored Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm)

We’re here to support you to achieve your fundraising goals. We’ll be in touch with support emails, but if you follow these simple steps, you can’t go wrong:

  1. Register, choose the time and date for your stream
  2. Create a fundraising page to collect all your donations via Tiltify and Just Giving.
  3. Promote your event on social media and in other streams, you might be doing.
  4. Host your stream and share your fundraising page everywhere!
  5. Feel great because you have done something remarkable for Mind and, in turn, your community.

There is guidance both on JustGiving and Tiltify on how to overlay your fundraising page onto your stream.

Our social media channels are predominately used for providing mental health information and support, and content that will engage with all our followers.


Engaging your own network of contacts, friends, and family is the most effective way to promote your activity. Once you’re signed up, we will give you further support and resources on promoting your event.
