Find solutions
We test and evaluate the best approaches to improving mental health in communities and then roll them out as widely as possible.

We give advice to millions of people on mental health. We are most well-known for running Mental Health Awareness Week across the UK each year. We enable mentally healthier lives through public information and engagement.

Change policy and practice
We propose solutions and campaign for change to address the underlying cause of poor mental health.

Build a strong foundation
We aim to become an exemplar employer and aim to continue to build an organisation that is financially sustainable and thriving.
