Could you do something amazing for LGBTQ people?

Take on a challenge event, run a bake sale or find your own inspiration to raise funds for MindOut

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 online for LGBTQ information and support on Wednesday 24th October from 10 am – 12pm. A specialist worker from MindOut’s Advocacy Service will be online.




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.

Find out how MindOut helped Christine

Watch Christine’s selfie to find out why she feels LGBTQ specific services like MindOut are crucial when experiencing the double whammy of discrimination because of her mental health issues as well as her sexual identity.
