    I just received this response from Mind Charity 

    Thank you for reaching out and for sharing your poem. It’s a lovely gesture, and it's great to hear you have benefitted from Minds services.

     

    If you would like, you are welcome to post your poem on Facebook and tag Mind platforms and use the hashtag #FightForMH to join in and spread the conversation: : Mind on FacebookMind on TwitterMind on Instagram for our followers to see.

     

    If you are interested in sharing your story and experiences, we do have a small platform called Blog for Mind, where you can submit your blog and we’ll review and let you know if we can publish it. However, we often get far more requests than we can publish or respond to. Unfortunately, that means that we are not always able to publish posts or provide feedback. The best place to submit something would be via this page > https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/your-stories/blog-for-mind/

     

    You might also like to have a look at the ‘media volunteers’ section of the Mind website which gives you full details on how to use your story to help Mind spread the word about the issues around mental health > www.mind.org.uk/get-involved/volunteering-participating/become-a-media-volunteer/

     

    Again, thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to Mind. If there is anything else we can help with, please don’t hesitate to get back in touch.

     

    I hope you have a lovely rest of the week.

     

    Best wishes,
