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”

Peer Support Groups open

Our Peer Support groups are open to new members now

 

MindOut is open

All our services are offered online, by phone and by email. Please do contact us to find out how we can support you.

We respond to phone messages and emails as quickly as possible. We aim to get back to you within 2 days, at the moment it may take a bit longer.

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

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

We recognise that our communities are wonderfully diverse and welcome all LGBTQ+ people including those who identify as asexual, aromantic, pansexual, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid and intersex.

Our services are also available to those who may not identify under the LGBTQ umbrella including straight people who have sexual and/or romantic relationships with LGBTQ people, men who have sex with men, women who have sex with women, people who previously identified as LGBTQ and those who are questioning their sexual and/or gender identities. If you are unsure, please do get in touch with us.

We are next online for LGBTQ mental health information and support on Monday 20th September, from 3:00pm until 5:00pm.
