Brighton based charity MindOut shortlisted for British LGBT Award

For the second year running, MindOut, the LGBTQ+ mental health service, has been shortlisted for a British LGBT Award in the category Top 10 LGBT+ Charities or Community Initiatives.

MindOut, a mental health service run by and for LGBTQ+ people, works to improve the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ communities and to make mental health a community concern.

You can vote for MindOut here. 

Last year It helped 1,342 people struggling with social isolation, suicidal distress, financial hardship, discrimination and prejudice, hate crime and exclusion.

Helen Jones, CEO of MindOut, said: “We would be delighted if people voted for us. A vote for us is a vote for mental health, winning this award would mean that more people in our communities get to know about the services we offer, more people would think about mental health positively and would do loads to help people question stigma about mental health.”

The British LGBT Awards were born in 2014 with the aim of shining a spotlight on role models and organisations who are working tirelessly to better the needs of LGBTQ+ people. You can vote up to April 5th, so cast your votes now!

All categories are voted on by the general public and last year the Awards recorded approximately 150,000 unique voters. Winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony on Friday, May 29, 2020 at The Brewery, London.
