Mind was one of several charities to benefit from a donation from The Archewell Foundation.
“We know that the pandemic has taken its toll on our mental health, with more people than ever coming to Mind for support – whether that’s through our website, Infoline, or the services run by our network of local Minds across England and Wales. At the same time, this past year has been difficult financially for the whole charity sector – including Mind – as many fundraising events were cancelled or postponed and charity shops were regularly closed to comply with lockdowns and restrictions.
“We appreciate any donations - no matter how large or small, as they allow us to continue our vital work including helping to prevent suicides by providing information and support to anyone affected by poor mental health. Mental health problems can affect anybody, regardless of factors like age, gender, ethnic group or socioeconomic status. We’re grateful to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Archewell Foundation for this support, which will help us continue to make sure everyone with a mental health problem gets both support and respect.”
