Rethink Mental Illness is a charity that believes a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness. 40 years ago, one man bravely spoke about hisfamily‟s experiences of mental illness in a letter to the Times and in the process brought together hundreds to talk about their experiences of mental illness and
support each other. Today we directly support almost 60,000 people every year across England to get through crises, to live independently and to rebuild their lives.
We give information and advice to 500,000 more and we change policy for millions.We remain and will always be a membership organisation, governed by people whohave lived through mental illness.
