Corporate challenge events

Here at Bristol Mind, we simply wouldn’t be able to do all our crucial work without the support of our brilliant corporate partners! Whether it’s helping us to run our counselling service or helplines, provide advocacy services or raise awareness of mental health, you can support us to help those most in need. As a Bristol-based charity which is independent from Mind, the national organisation, we rely on the generosity of local businesses for donations, which go directly towards supporting local people.

Mental health issues can be isolating and frightening. But at Bristol Mind, we believe that by tackling the stigma of mental illness and bringing our local community together, we can create a socially just society that stands up for good mental health for all. So why not show your support and take on a corporate challenge for us?
