We’ve joined with Co-op Legal Services to offer you the chance to make a simple will – or joint wills with a partner – for free over the phone. If you’re 18 or over and live in England or Wales, simply register below to be put in touch with a professional will writer. There’s no obligation to leave a gift to Mind in your will, but we’d be very grateful if you’d consider remembering us in this way.
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.
Pete experienced a panic attack, on his way to a work conference. He didn't feel safe, so contacted our Infoline for support. Watch Pete tell his story, and find out how we helped him when he needed support.
Once your instructions have been finalised you will be sent your will in the post together with clear signing and witnessing instruction. They can also check and store the will for you free of charge, and send a photocopy back to you.
You must be over 18 years old and live permanently in England or Wales to use the online and telephone offer. If you live in other parts of the UK and are over 18, please register to our face-to-face offer.
While there’s no obligation to leave a gift to Mind in your will, many people who use our free will services do. The kind of gift you leave will depend on your individual wishes, and you can read more about types of gifts here.
Co-op Legal Services will discuss your options with you. If your requirements are not covered by the free will service then you’ll need to pay the difference between a simple will and your will. Please make your needs clear upfront when arranging your appointment, and then you will be able to talk through the costs of any extra work you will be asked to pay for.
Yes, Mind carries the cost of simple wills made as many people who use the offer choose to kindly remember us in their will.
Yes, sometimes a remote appointment isn’t suitable for your needs. We also offer a face-to-face appointment through National Free Wills Network you can use.
It is completely up to you – please be aware local Minds are charities in their own right, so you will need to provide their charity number. We will pass on information about gifts made to local Minds through the offer so they can thank you and keep you updated about their work.
