We’re proud to support the Mind Media Awards, celebrating those that challenge the status quo and bring mental health issues out into the open.

“Since our people selected Mind as one of our National Charity Partners in June 2013, we’ve seen a fantastic level of engagement, from fundraising, pro bono to volunteering.

Our CEO David Sproul signed the Time to Change pledge in October 2013, acknowledging the importance of talking about mental health and being aware of the needs of friends and colleagues. This has really inspired our people to share their stories and to talk much more openly about the topic of mental health.”
