What we do

Mental Health UK supports people affected by mental health problems including friends, family and carers. Working across the UK, we bring together over 40 years of expertise from our four national founding charity partners to improve understanding and provide vital care. Here are just a few of the ways we provide advice, information and support.

Support groups

Each support group is run by volunteers with experience of living with mental health problems. Groups are uniquely developed to care for the needs of local members. They reduce the isolation that can come with mental illness and provide a safe space to talk openly without discrimination.

Advice

Our Mental Health and Money Advice service provides UK-wide support to those living with mental health and money problems. The first service of its kind, it’s helped thousands of people understand, manage and improve their financial situation as well as their mental health.

Information

We provide simple information about mental health and mental illness as well as how to seek support. Our ‘On The Inside’ information guides have an estimated reach of 5.4 million people. By turning this into a digital platform too, we have been able to reach more people and tackle the myths about mental health problems.

The difference we make

Here are some of the ways we help people across the UK thanks to funding from corporate partners and individuals. Together we really can make a difference.
