We're Mind, the mental health charity. We provide advice and support to anyone with a mental health problem. We're continuing to run Friends in Need and to support Depression Alliance's self-help groups. We can offer you advice and support on depression, too.

Help us to transform your story

For far too long the monster we call depression has got away with destroying thousands of lives, and every 12 minutes in this country someone attempts suicide. We want to change that.

We’re launching our Kickstart Appeal to transform the way society views depression and how we tackle it. We just need you to be part of it.

If you can, please make a donation today of whatever you can spare.

Since its launch a year ago our Friends in Need community has gathered over 7,000 users without any publicity. The problem is there are about 6 million people affected by depression in the UK. We need your help to reach as many of them as we can. We want to start more groups and publicise the ones we already have. We want to run TV adverts, drop leaflets, put posters in GP surgeries and get out on the streets.

All we need is the money to pay for it.

You can donate to the Kickstart Appeal on our JustGiving page or send a cheque to
