There is widespread ignorance of mental ill health in the general population and there is the associated stigma too. For some the stigma can lead to delays in people seeking help and support. Those that have ben helped speak here:
MHFA England CIC
Why Mental Health?
MHFA England was developed and launched in 2006 in England by the Department of Health. In September 2009 we became registered as a Community Interest Company (registration no. 7021392). Our Company is limited by guarantee (ie has no shareholders), and is at the heart of a network growing across England. We are also part of an expanding international movement around the world, currently involving 16 countries.

“Mental Health is everyone’s responsibility, something MHFA England strongly believes in. They create positive change in people by focusing on individuals’ capacity, ability, skills, knowledge, passion, interest, connections and on their potential to do things and make a difference for themselves. I believe that organisations such as MHFA England are a vital community resource and are leading the way in community engagement and creating networks that enable individuals, families and neighbourhoods to all play a crucial role to change people’s lives for the better.”
