Our mission is to raise awareness of mental health issues through education, community, and support, thereby reducing the stigma associated with mental health and behavioral conditions.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We specialize in mental health awareness and education. Suicide prevention, addiction and at-risk youth rank among our top priorities because these issues affect everyone. Not only those who suffer from a broad range of mental health conditions, but also their families and loved ones.

The Mental Health Foundation provides a deep wealth of resources to educate, inform, support and engage every member of our community. Part of what we do is to plan and implement a variety of initiatives and events as a platform to change perceptions and broaden the awareness of mental health conditions. As our community grows, these initiatives and events will expand online, in your own city, and throughout the world.

We have built a large audience through our social media channels. These include Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It’s though those platforms that we can engage with our supporters and those in need. Our “Frame of Mind” initiative is at the core of raising global attention and breaking the stigma regarding various mental health conditions, addiction and suicide awareness.

After two years of sourcing our content with the CDC, NIMH and the Mayo Clinic we have designed and launched our website. It’s one of the most comprehensive websites on mental health ever created. Through this website we have also built an interactive social community where individuals can interact with each other and discuss specific topics that range from mental health conditions to addiction. These topics can be discussed between users between one another, along with mental health professionals.
