In light of changing government guidelines around coronavirus, we've put together some useful FAQs about our free will offer below.
Firms are still accepting appointments, and will explore with you the best way possible to have your will written. Some may suggest using the phone or technology, depending on government guidelines where you live.
If you're self-isolating or government restrictions where you live are making it hard for you to attend your appointment, please contact the solicitor and they'll be happy to talk through your will-making options. That might mean using the phone, or technology to help you make your will.
Thanks to those who left us a gift in their will in the past, we've come a long way in improving support and awareness for mental health. From blocking the prescription of a drug proven to increase thoughts of self-harm, to preventing employers from requiring job applicants to disclose their mental health history. Thanks to gifts from people like you, we've been fighting for mental health rights and increasing awareness since 1946.
But unfortunately, there's so much more to do. Even today, suicide is the leading cause of death for people aged 20-34. And three in five of us experiencing a common mental health problem don't receive any support. That's simply not good enough. We won't stop until everyone with a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.
By supporting our work with a gift in your will, you can create a better future for mental health. We'll campaign, tackle stigma, and provide crucial support - with your legacy alongside us. Thank you.
