Rethink, the leading national mental health membership charity, works to help everyone affected by severe mental illness recover a better quality of life. We help over 48,000 people each year through our services and support groups and by providing information on mental health problems. Our website receives almost 300,000 visitors every year.
Our aim is to make a practical and positive difference by providing hope and empowerment through effective services and support to all those who need us. We believe that people who experience severe mental illness are entitled to be treated with respect and as equal citizens. We actively campaign for change through greater awareness and understanding and we are dedicated to creating a world where prejudice and discrimination are eliminated.
