Mental Health Foundation
See it's not just about schizophrenics like me. Mental Health is something which everyone should have some interest in. 1 in 4 people will have some kind of mental illness, whether it be depression, obsession, anxiety, some kind of addiction, etc. So, it's worth knowing about the Mental Health Foundation, a good cause that helps people. Worth reading the following article:
Mental Health Foundation:
"Founded in 1949, the Mental Health Foundation is a leading UK charity that provides information, carries out research, undertakes campaigns and works to improve services for anyone affected by mental health problems, whatever their age and wherever they live, fighting to bring mental health out into the open so people no longer feel ashamed or alone.
The Mental Health Foundation has a reputation for robust, highly regarded research to help people survive, recover from and prevent mental health problems and reaches millions of people every year through their work with the media to encourage a better understanding of mental illness.
They do this by:
- Learning what makes and keeps people mentally well
- Researching what will lessen the impact that mental illness has on someones everyday life, their relationships with their family and friends, and their opportunities for education and employment
- Communicating their findings to a wide range of people
- Turning their research into practical solutions that make a difference to people's lives.
The Mental Health Foundation website www.mentalhealth.org.uk is the most comprehensive source of mental health information in Europe, with over 2.5 million people visiting every year. They are experts at reaching the people online who need their help.
More than 100,000 booklets are sent out every year to help people looking for more information for themselves, or loved ones who are experiencing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and self-harm.
A gift of £20 can help the Mental Health Foundation identify and reach families who need their help; for families who are struggling with the stigma and secrecy of mental illness their information packs are a lifeline. They help families to understand what their loved ones are going through and tell people where to go for help. Just knowing that they are not alone can help prevent someone taking their own life".
