Changes to support during the Covid-19 outbreak

Please note, that our existing services will be replaced by telephone or video meetings from this time until further notice.

We recognise that with so many people experiencing uncertain times, isolation, loss of income and contact with friends and family, we have a key role to play in helping them manage their mental health and wellbeing. We are doing everything we can to design new services to help as many people as we can.

We will contact our existing participants individually to let them know of this development and to explain the alternative options that we’ve put in place to continue supporting them.

From Monday 23rd March 2020 you can email us if you need our support with your wellbeing at and we will do what we can to help you.

If you need urgent or crisis support with your mental health, please follow this link.

MindOut is a safe, confidential and accepting space for LGBTIQ+ people experiencing mental health issues. It offers recovery-based peer and staff support.

Each session involves a guided relaxation or mindfulness exercise, time to share experiences and concerns, followed by discussion workshops based on group members’ requests.

Discussions cover a diverse range of topics, for example:

  • Coming out to friends and family;
  • Developing self-compassion and building self-esteem;
  • Managing anxiety;
  • Mental health conditions;
  • Recovery-based coping skills – like helpful ways of thinking, relaxation and mindfulness.
