All donations and sponsorship to support Love Me Love My Mind.
Welcome to Love Me, Love My Mind.
We are a small, grassroots charity based in Epsom, Surrey, that was started to promote better understanding of mental health and to support the wellbeing of everyone in the local community. The charity runs a weekly drop in and Let’s Talk Epsom. It also organises the Epsom Mental Health and Well-Being Festival, an annual week-long event which brings people together, regardless of their background, to understand one another, to celebrate each of us, to learn and laugh and offer support and love.
We might not have the big budgets of some of the national charities, but what we lack in funds we make up for in passion. If you’d like to know more, come to an event or offer your help or support then do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

Life in Lockdown 2020
In March 2020 the Monday drop in met for the last time before Lockdown. We agreed that we would keep in touch by a weekly newsletter. This was good, but something more was needed to help pass the days and the weeks and the months… And so the idea of a ‘Life in Lockdown’ book came into being. It was an opportunity for everyone in the group to create something good and permanent from a challenging time.
The book tells the Lockdown stories of those who felt able to take part.
