Volunteering and participating at Mind

Volunteering at Mind can be a really rewarding and useful experience – and there's probably more ways of doing it than you might think.

As well as taking up a role in Mind's London HQ, or one of our many local Minds or Mind shops, there are many other ways you can give your time – cheering, making a video blog, joining our campaigners, talking to the media and more.

Take a look through the options on this page – what do you like the sound of?

If you have any questions regarding how you can get involved, please read our Volunteering FAQs.

Volunteering in a Mind shop

We have Mind shops in more than 150 communities around England and Wales, and we would not be able to run these shops without our many dedicated volunteers. As a volunteer in a Mind shop, you can help with jobs such as sorting goods, pricing and making sales.

Volunteering in a Mind office

Thousands of volunteers help deliver Mind's work in more than 140 local Minds across England and Wales and in our national offices in London and Cardiff.

When we have volunteering opportunities at Mind around the country, they are listed on the vacancies and volunteering page. You can also find your local Mind to get in touch with them directly.

Help us improve our mental health information

We have information on over 100 different topics on mental health. The most important thing about this info is that it is based on real people's experiences. Take a look at what topics we are currently working on to see if you can get involved.

Join our Youth Voice Network

Young people have told us that they want to feel more heard, especially in regards to decisions that affect their lives.

Here at Mind, we want to listen.

By joining the Youth Voice Network you will be offered a range of ways to get involved and shape our work. We want to hear from young people living in England or Wales, with and without personal experience of having mental health problems. You just need to be between the ages of 11 and 24, and be ready to make a difference.

Become a media volunteer

Media volunteers are extremely important to our work. Journalists from a huge variety of media are frequently looking to interview people with particular experiences of mental health problems. Being able to include a 'human interest' element can make or break a story in the media, bring an issue to life, and allow the audience to empathise with issues around mental health.
