Rethink Mental Illness
Welcome to Rethink Mental Illness. We help millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes, changing lives. Here is just a selection about what we do, and what it means for you.
Who are we?
We believe a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.
Over 40 years ago, one man bravely spoke about his family's experiences of mental illness in a letter to the Times and in the process brought together hundreds to talk about their experiences of mental illness and support each other.
Today we directly support almost 60,000 people every year across England to get through crises, to live independently and to realise they are not alone. And we change attitudes and policy for millions.
Alzheimer’s Research UK
Age UK is the countrys largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life.
The over-60s is the fastest-growing group in society and there are more of us than ever before.
Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. At Age UK we provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people.
We stand up and speak for all those who have reached later life, and also protect the long-term interests of future generations.
A world where everyone can love later life
Our vision is ambitious. It will not be easy to get there, and it wwill not be a quick journey, but we believe it is how things should be for older people and we work every day to achieve this.
The Age UK network comprises around 170 local Age UKs reaching most of England.
Our family also includes Age Cymru, Age NI and Age Scotland, as well as Age International, with whom we support vulnerable older people in more than 40 countries worldwide.
Seafarers UK has been helping people in the maritime community for over 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families, and to those in education or training who are preparing to work or serve at sea. The charity does this by giving grants to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
Your support will help fund free advice and support for seafarers, when they are injured at sea, have mental health issues or problems with housing or debt, or help to ensure that young seafarers have access to the best quality training and safety, or help to improve the quality of life for retired seafarers and veterans by providing shelter and care, as well as some daily essentials that a small pension (or none) cannot cover.
