“Supporting mental health is wonderful choice, because so many people are in need of urgent help. Your involvement has the dual benefit of raising vital funds, while also helping to challenge stigma and promote acceptance. I’m really grateful for your help and goodwill.”
Paul Flitcroft, Director of Fundraising and Marketing

Fundraise

Fundraising is a great way to support better mental health. Whether it’s running a marathon, organising an event or taking part in a sponsored activity, there is a whole array of things you can do.

In this video we hear about Claire’s experience of running the British 10K for people affected by mental illness:


Why you should fundraise for mental health

One in four of us will be affected by mental illness at some point in our lives. In the UK, there are up to ten million men, women and children suffering from mental health problems at any one time. However, the impact of mental illness extends far further than the person who experiences it; experts estimate 6-10 more people are affected.

SANE improves quality of life for anyone affected by mental illness, including family, friends and carers. We achieve this by providing confidential help, expert information and practical advice. Anyone can access emotional support, free of charge, at any time of day or night, 365 days a year. SANE relies on voluntary income to fund its work.
