MindOut are a LGBTQ mental health charity based in Brighton. This service is specifically for LGBTQ people and can be accessed from anywhere in the UK or abroad. People make contact for emotional support when other services are not open, when they are not able to access LGBTQ support in their local area or if they just need to chat to someone when they are going through a difficult time. Our trained online support workers are also able to signpost people to support they may not know is out there for them.Our service is anonymous and confidential. The service is also free.

Our online support service is an instant message service that is confidential, non-judgemental and anonymous. We are open every day including weekends and evenings.
The service is run by trained online support workers and mental health advocates who are ready to provide emotional support, information or signpost you in the right direction. You can chat to us about whatever is on your mind, and we will always try and help in whatever way we can.

  • Listen to how you are feeling, without any judgement and without forcing unwanted advice or opinions
  • Help you to think about ways to stay safe and develop coping strategies, if this is what you want
