Reviewing for Mind

We're not currently looking for reviewers.

Do check back here regularly though, as we update this page every few months whenever new opportunities come up. 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 an information reviewer?

Mind's information reviewers are volunteers with experience of mental health problems who feed back on our information. They help us better understand the different needs people have and what they want from our information.

We recruit reviewers for specific opportunities when we are updating some information or researching a topic 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 feed back on the script for our new video on panic attacks.

We are particularly keen to hear from people of colour, people who identify as LGBTIQ+, disabled people and people from faith communities.

How to apply

To apply please fill in the quick application form below.

The application deadline is Monday 25 April at 10am, and we will aim to get back to you within a week to let you know whether you've been selected.

If you're chosen, the questionnaire will be emailed to you within a few days 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 there are lots of queries 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 – if you're not feeling well right now consider whether reading about subjects close to your own experiences might be upsetting

What does reviewing involve?

  • We will email you the information we'd like your feedback on, along with a short questionnaire about it.
  • We ask that you complete the questionnaire electronically and email it back to us by the deadline.
  • We recommend you spend no longer than 1-2 hours on it in total.

We're 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.

Any personal information you give us will be used solely to select a review panel. We will hold this information 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.
