Reset for Mental Health

Gamers everywhere are joining #TeamMHUK and using their passion for gaming for good online to help us change the lives of people affected by a mental health problem IRL.

 

Are you ready to Reset for Mental Health?

By organising your own streaming event or playing a marathon of your favourite game whilst fundraising for Mental Health UK, you have the power in your hands to have a direct impact on peoples’ lives.

Build your audience, do something to support people that need it and feel great.

To get going with your Reset event, just follow these steps:

  1. Sign up by registering your event!
  2. Set up your fundraising page.
  3. Check out this step-by-step guide to streaming your own event, and this guidance on staying safe whilst gaming online.

Whether the money you raise helps us answer the next call to our helpline or keeps our free online community Clic moderated 24/7, it is you that can help people get the support they need.

Once you hit your minimum fundraising target of £250, we’ll send you a Mental Health UK medal to say thank you!

Elliot chose to stream his gaming for 24 hours in memory of his friend and fundraise for us and raised £1,000!

"The reason why I'm doing this 24 hour gaming live stream is because I've recently lost a good friend who has suffered for a long time with their mental health, because of actions out of all of our control he took his own life on misadventure, which provoked me to further raise awareness, that mental health is a real concern and should be to everyone!

"Mental Health UK offer a lot of support services all over the UK, having different branches and specialising in different services, anybody who does this, absolutely has my support. So I'm going to stream from 8pm tonight to support and raise awareness for you guys!”

– Elliot, Mental Health UK fundraiser

The positive impact the group has had on me is huge. I don’t feel so isolated any more. If the support had not been available I would still be facing depression and loneliness, unable to look after myself and over-thinking things.

Read what some of our fundraisers have to say.

"I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise."

Louise Greenwood,
Lloyds Banking Group

"I was totally elated when I crossed the line and so glad I’d given it a go!"

Helen Taylor

"Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps"
