Mental Health Awareness (MHA) is a not-for-profit organisation that does not earn profits for its owners. All of the money earned by or donated to MHA is donated to supporting charities used in pursuing the organisation's objectives (below) and in keeping the running of the day-to-day duties of the organisation.
The money is also donated to charities devoted to our cause outlined in our mission statement. These chosen charities will change from time to time and will be updated on this website in due course.
Our Mission Statement:
"To actively raise awareness and support charities that educate and create awareness for all conditions and all levels of mental health. Our aim is to help make a positive difference to people’s mental health and wellbeing by working alongside mental health charities. We will actively seek to provide help and services to people living with the day-to-day challenges of these disorders. We do this by running events and fundraisers that support and help mental health charities."
"Our plan in the future will be to actively provide a hub for anyone suffering or knows someone who is suffering and in need of a safe and trusted community to share stories and find support for others who are dealing with mental health disorders or caring for a family member with a mental illness. We believe that, with the right personalised support, anyone with a mental health need can live the life they want to live. It is our vision that everyone gets the personalised services and support they need."
To understand mental illness, to promote mental health and well-being, and to challenge inequality and disadvantage throughout the course of life and to donate to the charities that support theses challanges.
We actively seek charities that drive improvement and change the status quo of day-to-day policy and practice
We amplify the real experiences of those most affected by health inequality and mental health stigma and discrimination
We aim to shine a light on the world to show that not being okay is in fact okay
We work alongside chosen charity partners who are actively practising consultancy and research to make a change
We provide funding support towards mental analysis and improving results
We raise money and awareness through social media activity
We create events to raise awareness and funding support towards our cause and charities
We will cease to exist when equality for mental health is no longer considered out of our reach, and when people receive the best understanding and intervention wherever they live, whenever they need it and without shame.
Mental health problems affect around one in four people across the UK
