Supporting mental health
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem.1 But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. As with many mental health statistics, it’s hard to know if the figures really represent what is happening. They can only tell us about mental health problems that have been reported – many cases may go undiagnosed.
While all this can paint a gloomy picture, there is help and support available if you’re worried about your own or someone else’s mental health.
MIND provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. They'll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner. They also campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. They won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
