Heads Together

Since 2016, Heads Together has encouraged millions of people to have important conversations about mental health. Learn about the campaign, and get involved.

What is Heads Together?

Heads Together is a campaign which encourages people to have important conversations about mental health.

Led by the Prince and Princess of Wales, the campaign unites 8 mental health charities, including Mind. 

Money raised by Heads Together supports projects which tackle the challenges of talking about our mental health.

These projects include:

  • £2m to create tools for young people seeking mental health help online
  • New programmes to support mental health in schools, workplaces and the defence community

What's Mind doing as part of Heads Together?

Since the campaign began in May 2016, we've been supporting people with mental health problems, and their friends and families, to talk about their experiences.

Our volunteers have been speaking out. They're showing how talking about your mental health can help. Check out some of their stories below.

How can I talk about mental health?

It can be hard knowing where to start when talking about your mental health. As part of the campaign, lots of celebs have been speaking out about their experiences.

By having a conversation with his psychiatrist, Bill, Mind President Stephen Fry showed that if you're struggling, it's OK to say so. 

Check out his film, and others, below.
