Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem.

We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.

Your monthly donation will help us ensure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.



Pause is a subscription service to help you carve out a monthly moment of me-time, a chance to put aside daily stresses and chores and to focus on your wellbeing. Each month you'll receive a Pause box through the post containing an activity or gift designed to encourage creativity, relaxation, a new skill, or to offer a precious moment of calm. You can use these gifts and activities to savour a little alone time or share experiences with friends or family. Pause is brought to you by Mind, the mental health charity. By subscribing to Pause, you're donating to supporting Mind's vital work to ensure that no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

Your subscription to Pause costs £7.50 a month, which is a donation to Mind, the mental health charity. Mind will receive 100% of your monthly donation.

By signing up to Pause, you're helping Mind provide support and advice for people experiencing mental health problems. Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. We won't give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets the support and respect they deserve.

We will take direct debit payments on the 14th of each month. Direct debits will take at least ten working days to set up.

You should receive your first box the month your first donation is due. We will send you your Pause box by 2nd class post around the same time we receive your monthly payment, meaning you should receive your pack the third week of each month.

We have designed Pause box to fit comfortably through a standard letterbox.

Pause is an ongoing subscription, you will receive 12 packs over the course of the first year. After this, you will receive a further three Pause-style packs over the next year, in January, June and October. Once you have received these packs your monthly donation will continue which we will use to fight for people experiencing mental health problems.

At the moment, we only accept Direct Debit.

If you are still waiting for your box, please get in touch at [email protected], and we will investigate.

Unfortunately, we currently offer delivery in the UK only.

If you would like to cancel your subscription, please contact us before the 8th of the month.

Mental wellbeing describes your mental state – how you feel and how well you can cope with day-to-day life. Our mental wellbeing is dynamic. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year. Positive wellbeing is about much more than just being happy in the moment. It can mean:

  • feeling confident in yourself
  • coping healthily with the stresses of daily life
  • building positive relationships
  • being fully engaging with the world around you.

Pause will encourage you to set aside some time each month to focus on your wellbeing and enjoy being in the present moment. Your regular donations will also help make a real difference for people experiencing mental health problems. We didn't design Pause to be a solution to mental health problems. For information and advice about mental health for yourself or others, visit information & support. If you prefer to talk to someone directly, don't hesitate to call Mind Infoline on 0300 123 3393, and one of our support team will be happy to help you. Lines are open 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
