Blake Mill as a company cares deeply about people suffering with mental health challenges. As CEO Ken Price said: “All of us here at Blake Mill have experience with mental health issues either personally or through family or friends. We understand the importance of the excellent work that Mind is doing in this area and are proud to support them.”.
Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. They provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Ian O’Reilly, Head of Community & Events Fundraising at Mind, said: “We are really grateful to Blake Mill for choosing to support Mind by donating a percentage of sales of their newly launched “Mind Over Matter” collection of designer shirts.
“It’s a difficult time, with many of us now feeling the impact of the cost of living crisis on our mental health and wellbeing, especially those of us with existing mental health problems. One in four of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year, and it’s so important that no one has to face this alone.
“Every donation that Mind receives allows us to campaign to improve services and provide information and support. This includes through services such as the Mind Infoline, legal line and our online peer support community for adults, Side by Side, so we can be there for as many people who need us as possible.”
Mind has a confidential information and support line, Mind Infoline, available on 0300 123 3393 (lines open 9am - 6pm, BST, Monday – Friday)
Mind’s online mental health community Side by Side is a safe space where anyone aged 18 and over with experience of a mental health problem can share their story, connect with others, access Mind’s wider information and resources, and give support in return.
