we are


A future where no one needs to face mental illness alone.


We provide transformational support for people ensuring that everyone has access to the support they need, when they need it and in a way which works best for them.

We seek to change society by changing attitudes, fighting stigma and influencing government to ensure a better quality of life for those affected by mental illness.

our history

We have been a charity for over 50 years, after journalist John Pringle penned an anonymous article in The Times about caring for his son experiencing schizophrenia. Since then, we have evolved to support more people with severe and enduring mental illness.



Over the past number of years, our charity has grown and with it has grown our ambitions to support more people in more parts of the country, to support people to access our services, and to play a part in advocating and providing a platform for people affected by mental illness.

Read our ambitious new strategy, Time for Change, so we can make our charity more public facing and accessible to better reach those in need and raise support for our cause.
