Free Your Mind join UK SAYS NO MORE

Free Your Mind join UK SAYS NO MORE to end domestic violence and sexual assault. 





Free Your Mind is Child Domestic Violence and Mental Heath support, awareness and support service. Domestic Violence and Mental Illness is a major problem of our time; one that impacts on all aspects of a person’s life.

  • 1 in 3 children will have a mental illness as a direct result of family violence in their home.
  • 1.8 million are effected across the UK.
  • 1 billion children are effected globally.

Here at Free Your Mind we are determined to redress this problem by providing the tools, support and community to help people rebuild their sense of self, and to empower them by teaching and advocating self-care and helping them to share their experience.

Free Your Mind is a registered Community Interest Company, founded by Natasha Benjamin in 2013 when she began a personal blog which grew in following and Free your Mind was born.

‘Once I knew that my recovery was my responsibility I started to understand and take control of my life and the way I was living it and I want to help, guide and encourage others to do the same.’

You too can now create your own personal blog and go on your own writing journey. Feel free to express yourself, and experience the healing feeling that writing brings, alongside a community of others who are also on the same journey within our own platform: Click here to start writing
