Scunthorpe Charities | HELP The Mental Health Charity Scunthorpe


Each year about one in four UK residents experience a mental health problem, from mild depression, right through to more serious mental health problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The majority of people who experience mental health problems can get over them or learn to live with them, especially if they get help early on.


Mental health is everyone’s business. We all have times when we feel down or stressed or frightened. Most of the time those feelings pass. But sometimes they develop into a more serious problem and that could happen to any one of us. Everyone is different. You may bounce back from a setback while someone else may feel weighed down by it for a long time.


There’s a stigma attached to mental health problems. This means that people feel uncomfortable about them and don’t talk about them much. Many people don’t even feel comfortable talking about their feelings. But it’s healthy to know and say how you’re feeling. Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same. It can change as circumstances change and as you move through different stages of your life.


Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live your life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health you might find the ways you’re thinking, feeling or reacting become more difficult or even impossible to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.


Mental health in the UK is grossly underfunded, with too many people receiving no help at all. This often leads to hundreds of thousands of lives being put on hold or ruined with thousands of tragic and unnecessary deaths.



Scunthorpe Charities | HELP The Mental Health Charity Scunthorpe




HELP The Mental Health Charity aims are to provide advice, support and donations to carers and families who have family members suffering from a mental disorder, or conditions of emotional or mental distress.


In order to meet our mission and provide services in the community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals, businesses and organisations, we would not be able to support the vulnerable.





You can help the charity by volunteering, fundraising, donating goods you no longer require, items within a house clearance or a monetary donation.


Volunteering – HELP The Mental Health Charities Scunthorpe really appreciate volunteers. We could always use an extra pair of helping hands, so please join us. It’s a great way to meet new people and develop skills to use at work or university.


Fundraising – While not everyone can afford to give money to their favourite charity, there are still ways to raise money through different fundraising strategies. See our charities Scunthorpe fundraising page which offers tips on charitable fundraising so you can support charities that mean the most to you, regardless of your financial situation.


Donating goods you no longer require – Book a free furniture collection or FREE house clearance. Or even call to one of our Scunthorpe charities shops with the clothes, shoes, ornaments or general household goods you no longer require. Your donations will be hugely appreciated. Please email:
