View Pete's story

"When I couldn’t talk to anyone else, Mind was there for me"

Pete was struggling to cope with the anxiety he felt, just before a work conference. He called our Infoline and asked for help. In the film, he talks about the quiet, reassuring voice.   

A will to help

A will is a good way to plan for the needs of your family and loved ones. By leaving a gift to Mind you can also help make sure that in the future no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

Read here about your different options, get more information and order our free guide packed with useful information on wills. When our free will offer is available you can register here for this. With the offer, there’s no obligation to leave a gift to Mind in your will. If you feel able to include a gift, for example a percentage of your estate, any gift makes a real difference.

Our short film shows how gifts in wills help provide support and advice to anyone coping with a mental health problem.
