What we do

Working UK-wide, we deliver both national and local services that enable and empower people to understand and manage their mental health in a person-centred and empathetic way. With our local service delivery and national expertise in supporting people whose lives are affected by mental health problems, we have been able to mark a significant footprint in the areas that deeply challenge our mental health and stability.

With approximately 7.5 million people in the UK living with a diagnosed mental illness, and an estimated one in four of us experiencing a mental health problem every year pre-pandemic, our programmes aim to increase everyone’s knowledge and understanding on how to protect and maintain mental health and deliver programmes that support people with complex mental health needs through our four founding charities.

We deliver support and services for some of the biggest societal challenges that pose a threat to people’s mental health.

Our programmes focus on:

Understanding mental health

Our aim is for everyone to have the information, education and support they need to live their best possible life. Through our websites, social media, training, programmes, and services, we promote knowledge, awareness and understanding of mental health, provide access to quality evidence-based support, reduce mental health stigma and help businesses, schools and communities create mentally-healthy environments where people are encouraged to protect and maintain their mental wellbeing.

Money and mental health

In the UK, it is estimated that 50% of people in debt also experience a mental health problem; and one in five people experiencing a mental health problem also experiences money issues. Through our award-winning Mental Health & Money Advice service, we help people better understand, manage and improve their financial and mental health by providing clear and practical advice and support.

Supporting people back into employment

We know how vital employment can be for people, both mentally and practically in terms of providing purpose and financial stability. Into Work is a new holistic employment service providing wraparound support to help people living with mental health conditions back into employment. Thanks to our partnership with Bank of America, our Into Work service has been rolled out to adults living in Harrow (London), Gravesend (Kent) and Wrexham (North Wales).

Young peoples' resilience

75% of mental illnesses start before a person’s 18th birthday. Our young people’s programmes aim to equip 14–18-year-olds with the tools and knowledge to maintain their mental health through life’s transitions. We deliver Bloom in partnership with schools and colleges, and Your Resilience in non-educational settings. Our online resource library also offers support to parents and guardians to confidently engage in conversations about mental health, emotional wellbeing and resilience with young people.

Loneliness and isolation

2.6 million adults across Great Britain report that they feel lonely “often” or “always”. We believe that no one should be lonely or isolated, and we’re helping people to connect and support each other through our online peer support platform Clic. Since Clic’s launch, we’ve helped thousands of people to feel less isolated and find the mental health information they need by offering resources and facilitating a safe environment, moderated 24/7, for people to chat peer-to-peer online.

Navigating through the system

We believe that with the right support, at the right time, people living with mental illness can truly thrive in their community. Through our Community Mental Health Navigators programme, we aim to transform the way care and support is delivered to people living with severe mental illness by placing Navigators in primary care settings to link people to local services, support their non-medical needs and reduce pressure on the clinical services

The difference we make

We bring together the heritage and experience of four charities from across the country who’ve been supporting people with their mental health for nearly 50 years. 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.

Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The 17 interlinked goals address the global challenges we face and represent a collective call to action for us all – governments, business, civil society, and the general public – to work together to ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

Our primary contribution is towards Goal 3: ‘good health and wellbeing’ which includes a global commitment to promote mental health (target 3.4).

Through our partnerships and programmes like Mental Health & Money Advice, we are also contributing to the achievement of Goals 1 (‘no poverty’), Goal 10 (‘reduced inequalities) and Goal 17 (partnerships for the goals).
