Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Founded by Bryony Gordon in 2016, Mental Health Mates is a network of peer support groups IRL and online, run by people who experience their own mental health issues, meeting regularly to walk, connect and share without fear or judgement. With Walks across the United Kingdom, Mental Health Mates has become a thriving community that only continues to grow!
We know, from personal experience, that mental illness magnifies through isolation. So whether it is talking to someone, sharing with them or simply walking beside them, we believe that getting connected is the first steps to recovery.
At MHM, we support you in creating community groups, that not only help others, but also help you. Building a support group is a wonderful way for you to recognise just how capable you are, despite what your head might be telling you. We believe that finding power over your experience allows you to challenge and take back some control over that stuff in your head.
