BESA Charity

We are proud to support Mind as BESA’s charity for 2017/18.

Mind is a mental health charity focused on providing care and support for the 1 in 4 of us who suffer from mental health issues. They aim to empower people to understand their condition and choices available to them through:

  • Their Infoline which offers callers confidential help for the price of a local call
  • Their Legal Advice Service which provides information on mental health related law to the public, service users, family members/carers, mental health professionals and mental health advocates
  • Their award-winning publications and website, now certified by the Information Standard

Mind are offering many opportunities in the near future which everyone can take part in to help the charity do their lifesaving work. These include runs, cycles, swims and walks. For more information please visit Mind Challenges.

They have many opportunities for everyone to take part in throughout this year to help raise money and awareness. April is the time of the year to hold a quiz in the office to promote some healthy competition between colleges and to raise money for this great cause. In July you are encouraged to save any extra pennies from your lunch to donate and see who can raise the most.  

Mind have many ideas and activities to help raise money and awareness throughout the year. To find out more visit the website at Mind.
