MIND

DTA'S NOMINATED CHARITY

Throughout 2021, the DTA will be supporting the charity Mind. Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. Mind believe that no one should have to face a mental health problem alone they provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem and campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.  We encourage you to give through our Just Giving page .

Conor O'Callaghan, from the Community Fundraising Team said "Many thanks for wanting to raise money for Mind, especially during these strange times. We are very grateful for your offer of support at this time, especially as more people are turning to us for mental health information and support services".

You can do more than just donate, although the current situation has led to the postponement or cancellation of a number of active fundraising events, there are numerous other ways that you could fund raise please visit the Mind  website for ideas.
