raised of £8,000 target by 34 supporters

Weʼre raising £8,000 to continue to enhance Mike's Mates ( so that individuals in need can get access to mental health support faster and easier.

Don't have time to donate right now?


As five London-based professionals, we launched Mike’s Mates to create a central hub of information on mental health services so that you can find the right mental health support, at the right time. Support for the Mind.

The results: A faster route to help (less clicks, more clarity on options).

The story: When we were looking for help for our friend Mike, we found that there were a lot of great organisations doing great things (raising awareness, reducing the stigma..etc) but it was challenging to really figure out who could provide on-the-ground support in time. Many of the charities and organisations that provide practical support reinvest in their services so we want to improve visibility and access directly to them through enhanced marketing and technology.

The why: We lost our friend Mike to suicide in 2015. So in addition to our day jobs, we have launched this charity to help prevent you from going through the same experience. It is sponsored in partnership with Maudsley International and funded simply by ourselves and donations from friends/family.
