Because of those we've lost. Because of those we've saved. It's down to us. If we don't, who will?
We know many of you have recently been reflecting on the things that matter the most – family, friends and the causes close to your heart. Many have also been reminded of the value of planning for the future in order to look after the things you care about most.
After taking care of your family and friends, even a small amount can make a
huge impact. A gift in your Will could help people severely affected by mental illness for
generations to come.

When making a will your priority will be to provide for, and look after your loved ones. But many people also find that after they've done this they can leave something to a charity they hold close to their hearts. There are two main types of gift - a cash gift for a specific amount or a percentage of your estate.
Making a cash gift
"I give (insert amount) to Rethink Mental Illness (Registered Charity no. 271028), The Dumont, 28 Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7GR to be applied for its general purpose and the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of Rethink Mental Illness shall be a complete discharge to my executors."
Making a percentage gift
"I give (insert percentage) of my residuary estate to Rethink Mental Illness (Registered Charity no. 271028), The Dumont, 28 Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7GR to be applied for its general purpose and the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of Rethink Mental Illness shall be a complete discharge to my executors."
