About Mid and North East Essex Mind
Mid and North East Essex Mind are a local independent cause, affiliated to the national cause, Mind. They raise their own money to run their services, open to children, young people and adults living with a mild to moderate mental health problem. These include counselling, peer support, practical support and an out-of-hours crisis support service.
By playing make a smile lottery you will be supporting these local mental health services as well as enabling them to develop new services to meet the changing needs of their local community.
Each year 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem.
Last year, Mid and North East Essex Mind provided counselling to 450 clients living with depression. It costs just over £3,000 per day to run their services.

How Do I Win?
When you join, we will allocate you with a lottery play number. Our draws are randomly drawn each Friday (with exception when this is a Bank Holiday, when it will take place the working day prior). You don’t need to check the results every week, although you can if you want to. If you win, we will contact you to let you know. If we have your email, your prize winnings will automatically go into your make a smile account; where you can then request a withdrawal, after which monies are then transferred into your bank account, or if you don’t have an email with us, a letter and cheque will be sent via post (please make sure that we have your up to date address).
