Rethink Mental Illness is a charity that believes a better life is possible for the millions of people affected by mental illness. Over the past 40 years the services, groups and campaigns that Rethink run have helped bring people together to support each other.
Fast forward to 2018 and Rethink helps millions of people who are affected by mental illness throughout England to get through crises, to live independently and to realise that they are not alone. They also help change attitudes and policy for millions.
In recognition of the great work they do, Rethink Mental Illness was our Charity of the Year for 2018.
In our fundraising efforts, we organised bake sales, pub quizzes and a dance class to Salsa Away the Stigma.
Our big push for this year was scaling the Yorkshire Three Peaks, where we smashed our £6,000 goal in one event.
