Mental Health UK provides mental health advice, information, and support across England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. We bring together expertise from four mental health charities with over 40 years of experience improving understanding and providing vital care. Together, we offer support to the 1 in 4 people in the UK who are affected by mental health problems, as well as their carers, families, and colleagues.
Over half a million people accessed our information resources last year. Our advice services include Mental Health and Money Advice, which has helped 2,000 people in the most difficult circumstances to gain additional income or savings with a total value of over £5million since 2018. 600,000 people have benefited from its online resources and money-saving tools.
In 2020 we are rolling out Bloom, a new programme supporting 14-18 year olds to build their resilience. Over the next 2 years, Bloom will equip 500,000 young people with tools and knowledge to maintain their mental health through life’s transitions.
Alongside our services, we work to improve workplace wellbeing and help companies to support vulnerable customers through our mental health training and consultancy.
