Mental Health Foundation

Focused on work in the UK

We take a public mental health approach to prevention, finding solutions for individuals, those at risk and for society, in order to improve everyone’s mental wellbeing.

The practical things we do:

  • Community and peer programmes: we test and evaluate the best approaches to improving mental health in communities and then roll them out as widely as possible.

  • Research: we publish studies and reports on what protects mental health and the causes of poor mental health and how to tackle them.

  • Public engagement: 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.

  • Advocacy: we propose solutions and campaign for change to address the underlying causes of poor mental health.
