Join the fight for mental health. Walk with us and fundraise to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

We’re here to fight for mental health, for support, for respect. Join us for the Mind Walk and fly the flag for mental health.  Sign up to walk with us on 3 July, or pick any other day in July and join hundreds of others walking united in the fight for mental health – unstoppable together.

After all that’s happened over the last year, it’s more important than ever that everyone with a mental health problem can get support and respect. Many of us have experienced problems for the first time and those of us who were already struggling are finding things even harder.

Sign up for the Mind Walk and ask your friends and family to join us or show their support by donating. Walk with us in July to fly the flag for mental health and help make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

About the Mind Walk

The Mind Walk is not a physical fitness challenge, it’s about taking the fight for mental health out in the open. To raise awareness and to raise funds so we can keep fighting for support and respect for all of us with mental health problems.

Walk up to 10km on a route of your choice. Fly the flag for mental health your own way - walk on your own or with family, take in the sunrise or sunset or meet up with friends halfway for a midday picnic.

Choose a walking distance that feels achievable and suits your walking ability. We suggest you plan for no more than 10km. Post photos of your walk on social media and show people how proud you are to be part of the fight for mental health.

Every donation you ask for could be a conversation about mental health. Talking about the Mind Walk and why you are taking part could be the cue someone needs to seek information or support for themselves or a loved one.

Every conversation, every donation supports the cause and helps keep us here – on the other end of the phone, in your local community and fighting nationally for better services and support.

How we'll support you

Everyone who registers will be sent a digital guide to the Mind Walk, which will have fundraising advice to help you raise money to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone. 

A JustGiving page will be created for you when you sign up and when you receive your first donation, we'll send you a t-shirt to wear during the Mind Walk. We'll also send you a flag where you can write your reason for taking part, to fly high while you walk.

We know finding the words to ask for support can be tricky, so we have templates to help you talk about mental health and ask for donations. You can share your tips and experiences with the Mind Walk community in a Facebook group exclusive to the Mind Walk.

If you raise £100, we will send you a medal to wear proudly after the event.

Coping with anxiety after coronavirus: a nurse's story

The funds you raise by joining in the Mind Walk will help support people like Jess. Jess thought that her optimistic nature would make her unlikely to struggle with mental health problems, but with the pressures of her job as a nurse during the corona pandemic, she realised she was struggling to cope. She did her research and reached out to a mental health helpline to have someone to talk to who would understand. By supporting Mind, you are helping make sure that more people like Jess don’t have to face a mental health problem alone.
