About our service

Mental Health UK brings together the heritage and experience of four charities from across the country who’ve been supporting people with their mental health for nearly 50 years. With our local service delivery and national expertise in supporting people whose lives are affected by mental health problems, we have been able to mark a significant footprint in the areas that deeply challenge our mental health and stability. We provide support and services for some of the biggest societal challenges that pose a threat to people’s mental health, including money problems, navigating through the system to get the right support, understanding mental health, loneliness and isolation, and resilience in young people. The communications and marketing team plays a vital role in demonstrating the positive impacts our programmes, partnerships and campaigns are having right across society. The team brings to life the success stories of the charity and inspire others to join us in promoting better mental health across the nation. One in four people in the UK have experienced a mental health problem. At Mental Health UK we won’t stop until everyone has the tools they need to live their best possible life.

“From the very start I was made to feel welcome and respected in my new team. In the short time I have been working with Rethink Mental Illness as a service administrator I have been able to contribute ideas and make meaningful change, and I appreciate that Rethink allows me to direct my own role development and help me build on the skills I want to work on.”
