I need urgent help

Phil and Charlie from our Stories team have a favour to ask: will you share your experience?

We’re Phil & Charlie from the new Stories team at national Mind. We’d like to share a survey we have created to understand how we can improve the way you share your experiences with Mind.

We’d like to get your input on the new storytelling function at Mind. Our storytellers share their stories (experiences) with us for use across all of our channels, such as fundraising, social media and at internal and external events. This could include an interview, photo or video shoot, or sharing your experience with us via arts or music.

We’re really keen to understand what our supporters think to this function, including how we can make this a more appealing opportunity. We’re created a short survey (10-15 minutes) that we’d like to share with you. You can find the survey and more information linked here. But please read below for a little bit more information on our plans

This survey will cover the following topics:

  • Your experience sharing your story or experience with Mind
  • How we could improve this experience
  • What might make you nervous or apprehensive to share your experience
  • Your thoughts on the use of “stories” and “story tellers” to refer to this opportunity
  • Your thoughts on our storytelling vision and principles

At the end of the survey there is an option to register your interest in taking part in a focus group to explore these themes in a bit more detail. If you’re interested in taking part in this focus group but would rather not complete this survey, please let us know by contacting stories@mind.org.uk.

We will use what you tell us to inform the future of storytelling at Mind, we would really value your time and input.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with stories@mind.org.uk.
