For those experiencing mental illness we campaign for better services, and for carers and families, we provide vital support and information services. We directly provide high quality services for people severely affected by mental illness - from short stay crisis houses to long stay accommodation, advocacy services to floating community support.
The communications team is responsible for increasing the public profile of Rethink Mental Illness and ensuring that all colleagues are aware of, bought into and engaged in contributing to the Values and Direction of the Charity. Achieved by proactively promoting the charity’s services, groups and campaigns through its internal and external communication channels. Helping people to access relevant information and advice, and building a growing movement of supporters who share the charity’s passion to create a better quality of life for everyone severely affected by mental illness.
