Campaign for change
Rethink Mental Illness supporters campaign nationally and locally to improve the lives of everyone living with mental illness. Together, we have pushed mental health up the public agenda and changed Government policy.

A Place to Call Home is our campaign for safe, secure housing and support for people affected by severe mental illness.
The Government’s plan to cap the amount of Housing Benefit paid to those living in supported housing means that people living with mental illness may lose out on a place to call home. We need you to email your MP today to remove the threat of any blanket one-size-fits-all cap to Housing Benefit.
We are calling for people with experience of mental illness to be meaningfully included in the commissioning and design of mental health services.
Join our campaign today and we will provide you with everything you need to make an impact for people with mental illness in your area.
This is an exciting time for mental health. The Mental Health Taskforce has published its recommendations to improve mental health outcomes over the next five years.

Other work we do
The Government have committed to making the benefits system more supportive for those with disabilities and illness and we will campaign to make sure they do. You are likely to see a lot about benefits over the next year or so and we hope you will be able to campaign alongside us when you do.
With your support we have been campaigning for increased mental health funding over the last few years. With new money currently being promised to mental health we want to ensure there is transparency about where the money is going and how it is actually spent on the ground.
Our campaigns make a difference for people affected by severe mental illness. Read about some of Rethink Mental Illness's recent successes.
