MindOut's Christmas Appeal

Will your Christmas be full of fun and laughter? Alex’s Christmas won’t be like yours.

Just £10 to MindOut’s food bank would give Alex or someone like him all the food and support they need over the Festive Period

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 online for LGBTQ support and information on Monday 17th December, from 5:30pm until 7:30pm.



When we are online, you can contact one of our Online Support Workers in confidence for instant chat - see the box in the bottom right hand corner.

Christmas and New Year opening times

The MindOut office will be closed between 24th December 2018 - 3rd January 2019.

If you need support, you may use our Online Support service, which will be open for a session every day except 31st December.
Please see the pink box above for information about the next session.
