Protect our Advice & Information Service in England

Coronavirus is leading to a mental health crisis. The Rethink Advice and Information Service is more crucial than ever, as people are accessing support for their mental health for the first time as a result of the pandemic. But the ability to respond to those who need it most is at risk. Help us to keep this vital service running and as well as help more people who need support for their mental health during these unprecedented times.

The covid-19 crisis has drawn fundraising to a near halt. But we need funds in order to sustain the Rethink Advice & Information Service which helps thousands of people every year to:

  • Know what local support is available to them and how to access it
  • Feel confident in finding solutions to the issues they face and empower them to take action
  • Understand their rights and be equipped with the tools to ensure these are upheld and respected.

We must ensure people have access to the information, support and reassurance they need to understand and uphold their rights. We must continue to provide high-quality advice and information to build people’s confidence and empower them to take action to support themselves.

We need £205,000 to fund this project. Please donate what you can today.

The Rethink Advice and Information Service supports people across England with practical help on a wide range of topics such as The Mental Health Act, community care, welfare benefits, and carers rights. As well as general information on living with mental illness, medication and care.
