MindOut for Each Other

I feel proud and like I’m making a difference. It’s not just MindOut for mental health or for being LGBTQ – my wrist band says “MindOut for each other” and MindOut truly does that.

MindOut Advocacy Service

“the advocacy support I received has helped me survive financially but more than that I now feel much less suicidal and finally like I belong somewhere”

MindOut is a mental health service run by and for lesbians, gay men, bisexual, trans, and queer people.

We work to improve the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTQ communities and to make mental health a community concern

Last year we helped 1,342 people struggling with social isolation, suicidal distress, financial hardship, discrimination and prejudice, hate crime and exclusion.

Online Support

We are next open for LGBTQ online support on Saturday 21st July 2018 from 7:30pm – 9:30pm.

We are usually open evenings from 5:30pm for between two and four hours, and Sundays from 2:00pm until 4:00pm.

Contact one of our Online Support Workers in confidence - see the box in the bottom right hand corner.
