Rethink Mental Illness
Address: 89 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7TP, United Kingdom
Rethink Mental Illness is a charity that believes a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness. In 1972 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, live independently and to realise they are not alone. Our website and helplines provide information and advice to over 500,000 more, and we change policy for millions. Our hundreds of services, support groups, and members cover every county in England, giving us local insight and helping us spread innovations nationally. As a membership organisation, all our work is governed by people who have lived through mental illness.
