Mind
We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’re here for you. Today. Now. Whether you’re stressed, depressed or in crisis. We’ll listen, give support and advice, and fight your corner.
We are delighted Mind has been chosen as the official charity partner for the Simplyhealth Great Run Series 2018. We know the positive impact physical activity can have on mental wellbeing so this partnership is a natural fit and will help us to reach a point where anyone with a mental health problem feels able to ask for, and access, the help they need.
Money raised will fund our vital work including our Mind Infoline, information and advice services, and our campaigning to secure a better deal for the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem every year.

There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and we want to be there for them all.

Based in Kincorth, Aberdeen, Dee View Court is Scotland’s only purpose-built specialist neurological care centre. Demand for a place at Dee View Court is high, and there is a waiting list of that never gets any shorter. With places rarely becoming available and demand continuing to grow across the country, we desperately need to expand.

To reach more people, we need to raise £3.9 million to extend Dee View Court, to build new specially adapted rooms and apartments, and give us the flexibility to care for a further 20 people living with conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and acquired brain injuries.

It’s a big project, and one we cannot do alone. You can help us realise our vision, and give more people in your community the care and support they need and deserve.
