We improve the lives of people severely affected by mental illness through our network of local groups and services, expert information and successful campaigning. Our goal is to make sure everyone affected by severe mental illness has a good quality of life. We’re Rethink Mental Illness and no matter how bad things are, we can help people severely affected by mental illness to improve their lives. We’re on a mission to bring about meaningful change, through our services, groups and ground breaking campaigns.
As a leading charity provider of mental health services in England, people living with mental illness, and those who care for them, are at the heart of everything we do. They shape our expert advice, information, and around 200 services – everything from housing to community-based services. And they drive our campaigning to change the law and tackle discrimination. Together, we run over 140 local groups which provide vital peer support in the community.
If you’re severely affected by mental illness, through direct experience or as a carer, family member or loved one, we can help you. We support tens of thousands of people every year to get through crises, live independently and feel that they do not have to face mental illness alone. Our 200 plus services include everything from supported housing to resettlement work in prisons, one-to-one help for carers, to group activities for people leaving hospital.
