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 know the obvious symptoms of physical illness and seek help accordingly but we rarely take our emotional temperatures or check the balance of our mental health. As with most other illnesses, if the early warning signs are caught early enough and treated accordingly, it may be possible to avert the full-blown disorder.

Thank you for helping us transform the future for the next generation. You are playing your part in good mental health for all.

The Mental Health Foundation delivers and runs ground-breaking programmes that help prevent mental health problems and support good mental health through the stages of life. From pregnancy, throughout childhood, from working life to later life, the Mental Health Foundation is working to find and share what works in the prevention of mental health problems.
