About Rethink Mental Illness

Who We Are

People with experience of mental illness, and those who care for them, are at the heart of everything we do. They shape our expert advice, information and training, and over 200 services. They also drive our campaigning and help to run over 140 local support groups. Supporting all this life-changing work are our incredible supporters, volunteers and staff members.

Our Vision and Impact

Our vision is for equality, rights, the fair treatment and maximum quality of life for all those affected by mental illness, their carers, family and friends. As one of the largest charitable providers of services for people living with mental illness, we are well placed to make a direct impact on the care people receive. But we have a much larger vision too – to transform at every level the way our nation approaches mental illness. Every year, our diverse range of information and support helps tens of thousands of people get through crises, live independently and feel that they do not have to face mental illness alone.

Our History

Rethink Mental Illness was formed almost 50 years ago by a group of inspiring people who were caring for a loved one living with schizophrenia. Since then, the experiences and knowledge of carers and people living with mental illness have been vital in helping our organisation improve the lives of thousands of people every year. Together, we’ve done this by developing and establishing expert information and advice, services and support groups for people severely affected by mental illness. We’ve also provided training and launched local and national campaigns that have changed, and continue to change, how people and society as a whole view and behave towards people living with mental illness.
