We teamed up with Konditor & Cook to kick-start our Tea Party Packs and give you some baking inspiration. Our Tea Party Packs are all about eating cake, drinking tea and spreading awareness of mental illness. All you need to do is request a pack, and we'll send you all the information you need to get started.
We are also holding a competition! Konditor & Cook have given us a £25 voucher to give out to the best show-stopping cake. Send us a picture of your masterpiece either on Facebook or Twitter using #RethinkTeaParty.

Last Monday, our Advice Service took 94 calls but lack of capacity meant we couldn’t answer 52 of them. Please help us change this by donating to our Global Giving appeal if you can. We’re trying to raise £2,500 in the next three weeks as an initial contribution to start to turn this around, via Global Giving’s Spring Challenge.
