We can only do what we do because of the invaluable time that people give to help us with our work in the community. Volunteering with Mind Your Head can be a very rewarding experience, and there's various ways for you to be involved.

Put the "fun" in fundraising

Every donation to Mind Your Head goes towards promoting wellbeing in Shetland and ensuring that no one has to face mental illness alone. If you have any fundraising ideas or would like to organise an event to raise money for Mind Your Head, please phone 01595 745035 and ask for Anouska Civico.

Become a trustee

Our dedicated volunteers give up their time freely because of their desire to see Mind Your Head thrive as a mental health charity. Please email [email protected] if you would like more information about joining the Mind Your Head committee.

Facilitate a Wellness Activity Programme

Since our launch in November 2017, we have been cooking, crafting, writing, singing, performing, kayaking, exploring, drawing, gardening, taking pictures — you name it, we'll try it! Got a skill/passion/interest that you would like share with others? Email [email protected] and see how we can work together to battle isolation and connect likeminded people in the Shetland community.

Tell us your story

We need people to speak up and start talking about mental health! If you would like to share you journey (through writing, video, etc.) as a mental health feature please email [email protected].

Be part of our social media squad

If none of these opportunities seem right for you just now, why not connect with us on social media and be updated with the latest opportunities with Mind Your Head. Likewise, you can always help us reach as many people as we can by reposting our news. A wee "share" goes a long way.

We are @mindyourhead on Instagram and Twitter, and @MYHshetland on Facebook.
