In 1972 when John Pringle bravely spoke about his family’s experiences of mental illness he brought people together to talk about their experiences and support each other. The courageous steps he took are the foundations for Rethink Mental Illness today; we believe a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.
As you remember your loved ones Rethink Mental Illness remembers them too, today we directly support almost 60,000 people every year across England to get through crises, live independently and to realise they are not alone.
By supporting Rethink Mental Illness in remembering a loved one, we are able to lead the way to a better quality of life for everyone affected by mental illness.
Rethink Remembers your stories
If Rethink Mental Illness is a charity that is close to your heart and you would like to change things for people affected by mental illness we are able to support you to set up an online giving page for donations. We can also support you to host or take part in a fundraising event annually or as a one off.
Setting up a tribute fund with Rethink Mental Illness for a loved one gives you a lasting way to remember them. We are able to keep you frequently updated about donations made in their memory and the difference the fund is making to provide support for people who rely on us. Browse tribute funds by clicking on the Rethink Remembers Wall.
Funeral and Memorial Support
Collecting donations instead of flowers or in addition at a funeral service or memorial can help us to remember your loved one through our vital work. We can provide you with envelopes for the day and with support setting up an online page prior to the funeral.
