A Bit About The Mix
Gymshark Deload exists to make a genuine difference. To do that, we knew we needed to connect with people like The Mix, who truly care about the people they reach and the impact they have.
The Mix are a UK-based charity who offer essential support to those who need to talk, to lift you through the tough times and to live with you through the good times. From specialists to peers, their help is never more than a conversation away.
The Mix's group chats - live every night from 20:00-21:30 UK time - enable and encourage conversations about any and every walk of life. It doesn't matter whether you're after judgement-free advice from a Support Chat, or a light-hearted distraction from a General Chat, there are conversations on everything from anxiety to nutrition and self-esteem to exercise.
So, what do you want to talk about? You can join in on the conversation here.
Do They Mix Up Their Services?
The Mix are on-hand with other services too, like their 1-2-1 Chat - available to the Gymshark Family every night from 16:00-23:00 UK time - for advice from specialists (or as we like to call them, sidekicks) and their Crisis Messenger for those in greater need of someone to lean on.
It's important to understand that The Mix are UK-based, and so their services are tailored to people in the UK, but that doesn't tie up their helping hand. Group chats are open to all regions, and the 1-2-1 Chat and Crisis Messenger services are available too, but be aware, The Mix's help for people outside the UK may vary between providing it themselves, and directing to other helpful sources. Either way, you can be sure The Mix will offer the very best they can, every time.
If you've got something to say, no matter how big or small, we can't wait to hear it.
*Note: The Mix may signpost you to alternative mental health platforms, more relevant to your country of residence, age or personal requirements. Any signposting from The Mix will always be the interest of finding you the best support possible.
