About Mind – 0843 208 1749
Mind was first founded in 1946 by the merger of three voluntary services which provided support to people with mental health issues. It was known as the National Association for Mental Health before the name changed to MIND in 1972 and the lowercase version in the 90s. In 1969, a group of Scientologists attempted to join the NAMH to influence a policy around the treatment of psychiatric patients. Once their identity had been revealed, they were removed from the association. In 1971, the church of Scientology attempted to sue the NAMH, but this was unsuccessful on their part.
On the 10th of October every year, Mind recognises World Mental Health day. The first ever World Mental Health day took place in 1992.
In 2011, the actor Stephen Fry succeeded presenter Melvyn Bragg as the president of Mind. In 2008, the charity began running the Mind Media Awards which recognises the portrayal of mental health in the media, honouring the best ones. TV shows and films nominated for this year’s awards included the Island with Bear Grylls, My Mad Fat Diary and Inside Out.
Mind is a charity which focuses on mental health issues. They aim to provide support and advice to anyone who is facing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services further and raise awareness. The charity runs an Information line where anyone can get advice on mental health issues, a legal advice service for the implications around mental health law and a range of publications. There is a network of 140 local Mind offices designed to give local residents support. The charity also offers workplace training to help offices understand mental health including first aid and suicide prevention. The president of Mind is the actor Stephen Fry, who acts as an advocator for the charity. There is also a board of trustees that help make decisions which could affect the charity. You can join Mind as a member and you’ll be kept up to date on the latest news from the charity as you join the fight to end stigma against mental health. The members also vote for the trustees so you can really make a difference to how the charity is run or even become a trustee yourself. A one-year membership currently costs £26 or £6 if you are a student, unemployed, retired or receiving benefits.
Current campaigns that are run by Mind include Life Support, which promotes services used to assist people with mental health issues in their everyday life such as filling in forms or reintegrating into the community. There is also the Time to Change campaign, where Mind has joined forces with Rethink Mental Illness to launch an ambitious campaign to end mental health discrimination and stigma.
Mind Charity Shops – 0844 248 2053
You can find 150 Mind shops across England and Wales. The money raised from products sold in the Mind shop supports the community through funding campaigns and the Mind helpline. Items sold in the shops are donated by members of the public. Mind accepts clothing, books, DVDs, CDs, accessories, homeware and toys. To donate such items, visit your local store or contact them directly to see if they are able to offer a collection service. If you want to donate furniture, there are Mind furniture stores in Kings Heath, Alvaston, Hinckley and Syston.
If you would like to volunteer at your local Mind shop, contact them directly for opportunities. Volunteers get 25% discount on donated items in the store, a free Mind membership, the chance to gain an NVQ and the opportunity to get valuable retail experience.

Mind Charity Christmas Cards – 0844 248 2054
Each year, Mind develops packs of Christmas cards so that you can send cards to friends and family whilst also giving to charity. The cards usually come in packs of 10 with different designs and messages, including religious messages, illustrations and cute photographs. The cards vary in price from £2.99 to £3.29. You can purchase the cards from the Mind website and presumably the Mind charity shops. However, regrettably, the cards cannot be sent outside of the UK.
