Become a campaigner

People with mental health problems have been hit hard by the pandemic. Especially people from racialised communities, people in poverty, and children and young people. But it doesn't have to be this way.

We're campaigning to change this reality for people in England and Wales – and you can help.

Our campaign areas

People with mental health problems

We're pushing for real reforms to the outdated Mental Health Act. And we're campaigning for anyone with a mental health problem to get the best possible care, in a way that works for them.

Children and young people

We're campaigning for everyone aged 11-25 to get the right support for their mental health, by pushing for the government to #FundTheHubs.

People in poverty

We're pushing the government to change the benefits system and give people with a mental health problem a real, living income while they can't work.

People from racialised communities

The mental health system is stacked against people from racialised communities. We want to change the discriminatory Mental Health Act and improve the support they get.

Our campaigns

We'll fight your corner. We believe everyone with a mental health problem should be able to access excellent care and services. We also believe you should be treated fairly, positively and with respect.

We are campaigning to make sure every child or young person gets the mental health care they deserve.

Our five tests for UK Government

The peak of the coronavirus pandemic may have passed, but we’re now experiencing a mental health emergency. We're asking the government to meet our five tests to make sure mental health is a priority.

Statutory Sick Pay

We should all be able to take time off work when we are unwell. But those of us with mental health problems face a sick pay system that risks plunging us into poverty and pushing us out of work altogether.

Benefits

Support from benefits can give people help to live with independence and dignity. However, many of you have told us that you aren't getting the support you need, and that negative stereotypes of people on benefits means you aren't being treated fairly or with respect.

Leaving hospital

When you leave hospital after a mental health crisis, you need the right care and support to help you recover. Too many people aren't getting it.

Housing

You'll have heard about the UK's housing crisis in the news. But what you don't often hear, is that people living with mental health problems face more problems than most.

EFL partnership

We are the charity partner of the English Football League. We are working with the EFL, clubs and club trusts to promote awareness and understanding of mental health amongst football fans, and to help more people living with mental health problems access the support they need.

Heads Together

We're a proud charity partner of the Heads Together campaign. Led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Heads Together aims to change the national conversation on mental health.

A Million Hands

We're working together with the Scouts as part of their A Million Hands programme, so that more young people can learn about mental health.

Investing in Mental Health

Poor mental health can make earning and managing money harder. And worrying about money can make your mental health worse. We're supporting people with mental health problems to stay well by alleviating financial difficulty.
