We regularly campaign to raise awareness of issues affecting the nation’s wellbeing and to help people better manage their mental health.

We use our research and evidence to produce high quality information that helps people survive, recover from and prevent mental health problems as well as reduce the stigma associated with them.

  • We reach millions of people each year through the media and via events, information booklets and online resources
  • This website is used by close to 800,000 people every year, providing information on mental health issues and our work
  • We have distributed tens of thousands of publications and feature regularly in the media

We cover a whole range of issues - from fear and anxiety through to eating disorders and even sleep. We are committed to helping everyone better understand and manage their mental wellbeing.

Help us bring self-management to more people
