8 out of 10 MindOut service users have experienced suicidal distress now or at some point in their lives. Mind Out are dedicating this crowdfunder to their online support service which helps many LGBTQ people deal with suicidal distress every day from around the UK and internationally.
This much-needed instant message service run by and for LGBTQ people is confidential, anonymous and non-judgemental. It can be accessed via their website most evenings and weekends (www.mindout.org.uk)
Service users regularly tell state that this services have saved their lives: “I feel suicidal daily, mostly of an evening. This service is a lifeline!” (Online Support Service user)
In addition to online support, MindOut runs two ‘Out of the Blue’ peer support groups for LGBTQ people who have experience of suicidal thoughts. They also deliver advocacy, counselling and peer mentoring services. Their suicide prevention initiatives save many lives every year. In 2019 they helped over 1800 people across our services.
