Who are Mental Health UK?

Mental Health UK works across Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales to improve the lives of people with mental illness and to support carers. Together our four founding member organisations, MindWise, Rethink Mental Illness, Support In Mind Scotland and Hafal have worked for over 40 years to provide services, information and advice to support anyone affected by mental illness.

We run over 400 services and 200 volunteer support groups in communities around the UK. Over 90,000 people rely on our organisations every year to help them get through crises, live independently and realise they are not alone. Last year our health information was accessed online over 3.6 million times. Despite the size of these figures, we know many more people need our help.
