Our Media Volunteers

We have a network of people with mental health conditions and experiences who want to speak out about their lives in the media and at public events and conferences.

They come from all walks of life and have extraordinary stories to tell. Their accounts help to challenge the myths and stereotypes about mental illness by giving people with mental health problems a voice, raising awareness of mental health issues and helping reduce the stigma and discrimination that surrounds it in the process.

To find out more, contact us on press@mentalhealth.org.uk; tel +44 (0)20 7803 1110.

Our speakers were formerly part of th SHIFT Speakers’ Bureau, run by the now-closed National Mental Health Development Unit.
