Reviewing for Mind

Sorry, we're not currently looking for reviewers.

We update this page every month so check back here soon. In the meantime, please have a look at other ways to get involved with Mind's work.

Unfortunately we are not able to accept speculative offers to review topics that we are not currently recruiting for.

What is a Mind information reviewer?

Mind's information reviewers are volunteers who feed back on our information to help us better understand what different people with different needs might want from our information.

Reviewers are recruited each time we need people with experience of mental health problems to feed in on a topic we are updating or researching from scratch. This is a really important part of how we produce information so please consider applying if you'd like to use your lived experience to contribute to our research and help others.

What could you review?

We are currently recruiting reviewers to feedback on our information on Christmas and mental health.

How to apply

To apply please fill in the quick application form below.

The application deadline is Monday 19th October at 9am, and we will aim to get back to you within a week to let you know whether you have been selected.

If you are chosen, the questionnaire will be emailed to you on Monday 26th October and you will have one week in which to complete it and return it via email.

If there have been a lot of applications and we haven't been able to select you this time, we will let you know about other ways you can get involved.

If you have any questions please email [email protected]. We aim to get back to everyone as soon as possible but if we receive a lot of queries sometimes this can take up to 5 working days.

Unfortunately we are not able to accept speculative offers to review topics that we are not currently recruiting for.

Who can review?

To apply to be a reviewer you should:

  • have personal experience of the topic we're reviewing
  • be aged 18 or over
  • feel able to take on the work – it is a good idea to consider whether reading about subjects close to your own experiences might be upsetting, especially if you're feeling unwell.

We are particularly keen to hear from people from diverse backgrounds, including BAME, LGBTIQ+, disability or faith.

What does reviewing involve?

  • We will email you some information we would like your feedback on and a questionnaire about it.
  • We need you to complete the questionnaire on a computer and email it back to us by the deadline we set you.
  • We are not looking for editors or proofreaders, so don't worry if spelling and grammar aren't your strong point. We have teams that do this for us. We just want you to tell us your thoughts based on your experience of the topic.
  • We'd recommend that you spend no longer than 2 hours on it in total.

Any personal information you give us will be used solely to select a review panel and will be held securely. We never share or publish your health information without your consent.

Payment

Mind values reviewer feedback. We pay each reviewer £25 to say thank you for their time.

If you think this payment might affect your benefits, you should contact your local benefit office or Citizens Advice for advice before applying.
