Thank you for choosing to support the Mental Health Foundation
When people ask how we are, we often reply with "I'm fine", even when we're not. Our new campaign challenges that.
We are dedicated to good mental health for all. Thank you for playing your part in helping us find and address the sources of mental health problems.
A study of 2,000 adults commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation found that the average adult will say "I’m fine" 14 times a week, though just 19% really mean it. Almost a third of those surveyed said they often lie about how they are feeling to other people, while 1 in 10 went as far as to say that they always lie about their emotional state.
Our vision is for a world with good mental health for all.
Our mission is to help people to thrive through understanding, protecting and sustaining their mental health.
The Mental Health Foundation is the UK’s charity for everyone’s mental health. With prevention at the heart of what we do, we aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems so that people and communities can thrive.
Thank you for joining us
We all have mental health and there are steps we can all take to understand and protect it. The Foundation raises awareness so that people can better manage their mental health and help prevent problems occurring. We also support people vulnerable to mental health problems because of their life experience and circumstances, to overcome stigma, discrimination and lack of understanding.
People just like Debbie who with the support of people just like you, now has her life back. Five years ago Debbie’s life fell apart. Her relationship had broken down after the birth of her son Rory and she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Feelings of fear and hopelessness swept over her. Here in her own words is why today, her life is unrecognisable:
“A friend introduced me to Creating Connections, a Mental Health Foundation self-management course; it helped turn my life around. It saved me. Creating Connections encouraged me to take back control of my life, to make my own decisions and choices; I learnt new skills and developed coping strategies in a supportive group. Most importantly I now understand the importance of looking after mine and my son’s mental health.” Read Debbie’s full personal journey. Find out more about our work
