Losing someone you have loved due to mental illness can be a difficult experience, as can caring for someone with mental health problems – or living with a mental health problem yourself. By making an In Memory donation for a loved one, or leaving a gift in your Will, you can help us continue the work that we do to promote good mental health and improve the lives of those affected by mental health problems – now and in the future.
Donations in memory of someone
Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a way to remember someone special and help build a future for others. There are numerous ways that you can donate to us in memory of a loved one.
JustGiving in memory
Perhaps the easiest way to make a donation or fundraise in memory of someone is through JustGiving. With JustGiving, you can create a dedicated page in memory of a loved one. JustGiving enables you to share stories, thoughts and photographs of your loved one and encourage others to donate to Mind in Brighton and Hove to support our work. The button will take you to a page on the the JustGiving website, which links through to our account.
Through the Funeral Director
The Funeral Director will organise in memory donations for you. They will collect donations either at the funeral service or people will send them cheques later. They then pass the donations to us and we will write to you telling you how much has been raised in memory of your loved one.
Please ask for cheques to be made payable to Mind in Brighton and Hove. If you are writing your Will and leaving instructions for your funeral, please consider asking your family and friends to make a donation to Mind in Brighton and Hove in lieu of flowers.
Please make cheques payable to Mind in Brighton and Hove and send to us at the address below along with your name and address so that we can write to thank you:

Thank you very much for your kind and informative letter concerning the donations in memory of my wife. My son and daughter found it particularly helpful.
How to leave a gift in your Will
A gift in your Will, no matter how small, can make a lasting difference to someone experiencing mental health problems. Someone like Laura…
It is always best to seek professional advice from a solicitor if you are writing or updating your will. This ensures your wishes will be carried out. If your Will is straightforward it is often much cheaper than you might think and most solicitors will give you a quote over the phone
If you have already made a Will, you can still leave a gift to Mind in Brighton and Hove by adding a codicil to your existing Will. Again, we would recommend that you seek professional advice about this.
I’ve accepted I’ll have a mental health problem for the rest of my life but Mind has helped me realise I can still have a life. – Laura
