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.
