We need your help this Christmas. As the winter season approaches and the days get darker, these colder months can really put a strain on people's mental health. For some, celebrating may just feel like one extra thing to juggle, as routines often change and the pace of life can suddenly feel a bit more rushed.
We all feel changes over the festive period in some way, but for some people, their mental health can really suffer because of this. We rely on generous donations from people like you to continue to support everyone who needs it, for now and for in the future.
There are loads of ways to do this. You can donate online or you can do this from your phone by simply texting TOGX01 £2 to 70070.
Text TOGX01 £2 to 70070 to donate to TOG Mind and make a difference this Christmas.
