VocalMinds
Healing together.

We were born with one mission – to provide free, 24/7 support available to everyone and break the stigma surrounding mental health.
We all have mental health. We all deserve access to support at the times we need it most. And we all have a duty of care to look out for the mental wellbeing of ourselves and others worldwide.

It’s time we make a stand against mental health stigma.
It’s time we solve this – together.

We all have mental health. Though unfortunately, 792 million people are affected by mental health issues worldwide. Mental illness is the second-largest source of disease in England, and sadly the stats could be much higher, as 70-75% of people with diagnosable mental illness do not access support and receive no treatment or advice at all.

1,377,166 people were in contact with NHS mental health services at the end of December 2019. Since then? We have experienced testing periods of lockdown, isolation and fear. Our worldwide social media consumption has increased dramatically (figures having climbed by over 87% in some parts of the world!) – on the very platforms plagued with filtered images, false realities and demanding personal expectations, leaving us often questioning our own worth – ‘Are we really good enough?’

We believe that everyone deserves access to free mental health support and advice.

We believe that social media should be used to connect, empower and inspire each other.

And we believe that 792 million people battling mental health issues worldwide should NOT fight alone.

Do you believe what we believe?

        Why VocalMinds?

        I’m Alex Bradshaw and I’ve worked in social media marketing for six years.
        I started my career working for a start-up luxury fashion brand in Manchester City Centre. It was my dream job – connecting with influential people to share our products with their online audiences. This was towards the start of ‘influencer marketing’ – a tactic which then took the world by storm.
        I scrolled through social media, as part of my job, every single day.
        I’d watch YouTube videos and trawl through Instagram in awe of influencer lifestyles – their flashy cars, worldwide travel opportunities, their ‘perfect’ relationships and overnight success stories and I couldn’t help but feel completely inadequate.
        Why did my life not align with the stars? Why did life seem so much better for everyone else?
        This didn’t stop with influencers. I felt threatened by posts from my family and friends, as their seemingly perfect online lives dampened my truthful reality.

        I began questioning my self-worth, second guessing my every move, and striving for this perfection I saw online and believed would validate my existence.
        In 2014 my mental health worsened and I spiralled into Anorexia Nervosa, a dangerous eating disorder. Life started to crumble around me as I obsessed over my appearance and punished myself for not measuring-up to online expectations. I edited all of my photos, often deleting them days after because I felt too ashamed and embarrassed. I lost contact with all of my friends: Ignoring their messages and hiding away in fear of judgement and social anxiety. I pushed my family away and felt there was no way of ever escaping my self-despair.
        Speaking truthfully – I craved somewhere to turn to for support and advice. People say ‘talk to someone’ – but I didn’t want to. I felt ashamed, embarrassed and I truly didn’t understand that I was struggling with a recognised mental health condition. At the time I just felt as though I was a failure, and that nobody could help me.

        When I felt at my lowest, I turned to social media in the hope I would find helpful content from others feeling the same. But instead, I was presented with more and more highlight reels. I felt completely isolated, alone and as though no-one understood me. But that wasn’t the case.
        I created VocalMinds as a safe space community online. A place we can all turn to if we’re struggling.
        Social media is an incredibly powerful tool which brings people together – so why not use it for good? A designated space for Mental Health: To help, encourage, empower and support each other at the times we need it most.
        I hope you’ll join me on this journey by downloading VocalMinds and helping us to create positive change in a world faced with continuous challenges. Together, we can beat the stigma surrounding mental health. And it’s about time we did.
