Our founding charities

Mental Health UK brings together four national mental health charities working across the country. We have over 40 years’ experience of working to improve life for anyone affected by mental illness.

The vital funds that Mental Health UK raise from both individuals and corporate partnerships go towards our four partner charities as well as our own projects.

Individually we are mental health experts in our respective nations. Together we are an even stronger team. Our way of collaborating allows more people across the UK to access support for their own mental health as well as friends, family members and carers.
