Would you like to be involved in shaping Mind’s communications for Pride?

What's the opportunity?

We are excited to celebrate key awareness dates on our social media channels and with our funders and supporters. This year for Pride we are keen to work with people with lived experience of mental health problems to shape what we share on social media and with our funders and supporters.

We hope to create relatable content that resonates with our key audiences. We would like to work with three people from the LGBTIQ+ communities to:

  • Be involved in the shaping of our key messages
  • Be involved in discussing the content that we put together on our social channels
  • Work with us to decide the best channels for our content
  • Share your expertise from your lived experience
  • Be involved in other content we might put together, for example content in our Membership magazine, or an animation
  • Be happy to liaise with other organisations we hope to partner with
  • Work with us between February-May
  • Be happy to attend four hour long meetings, then have communication over email after that.

To take part you must:

  • Have lived experience of mental health problems
  • Identify as either Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Intersex, Queer, Pansexual, Asexual or Non-Binary
  • Live in England or Wales
  • Be happy to be involved online only
  • Be happy speaking to people external to Mind depending on content
  • Be happy to work with people at Mind from a range of teams
  • Have a keen interest in equality
  • Be able to work flexibly and respond to Mind staff over email in five working days when reviewing content
  • Attend four online meetings, each an hour long on the below dates:
    • 16th February 2022 at 4:30pm
    • 24th February 2022 at 4:30pm
    • 9th March 2022 at 4:30pm
    • 14th March 2022 at 4:30pm

Our way of saying thanks
