When making or updating their will, many people have found our free Wills Guide useful. The guide includes details on planning your will, choosing solicitors and thinking about the needs of family and loved ones. It also includes some recommended wording, and further information about our work.
If you'd like to share your intentions with us, we'd be really grateful if you could share these by emailing [email protected] or using the Freepost slip in your guide - it would be lovely to be able to thank you personally.
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.
If you intend to make a gift to us in your will, or if you've already included a gift to Mind in your will, we'd be delighted to hear from you. Not only does it mean we can plan better for the future, but we'd also love the opportunity to say thank you.
