  • What is the Heads Together campaign?

    Heads Together is a mental health initiative spearheaded by The Prince and Princess of Wales and The Duke of Sussex, which combines a campaign to tackle stigma and change the conversation on mental health with fundraising for a series of innovative new mental health services.

    Significant progress has been made to tackle stigma surrounding mental health in recent decades, but it still remains a key issue driven by negative associations, experience and language. Through this campaign, Their Royal Highnesses have built on the great work that is already taking place across the country, to ensure that people feel comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing, feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times, and that stigma no longer prevents people getting the help they need. In April 2017 Heads Together was the charity of the year for the Virgin Money London Marathon which became the first Marathon for Mental Health raising the profile of this important issue and inspiring people to talk about their own mental health for the first time.

  • Where can I find mental health support?

    Heads Together is an awareness-raising campaign made up of eight charity partners; we do not directly provide mental health services ourselves.

  • What will my money be used for?

    To ensure the right help is available to anyone seeking mental health support wherever they are and whenever they need it, funds raised for Heads Together will be invested in a range of new and innovative projects, and  in programmes to meet immediate need.  Some of the funding will enable Heads Together to fulfil the demand created by the campaign – our partners have seen on average a 50% increase in demand for their services since Heads Together was launched in May 2016 and this investment will enable them to increase and improve their response.

    Additionally a combination of projects and initiatives are being delivered:

    • Using digital technology to improve the quality and availability of education about mental health.
    • Improving resources for schools, employers and the military to enable people to get support wherever they are
    • Using digital technology to transform signposting to appropriate support
    • Using digital technology to increase the availability of support online

    All of the funding is being used to ensure people can access the right help, in the right place at the right time and the projects will be an exciting new phase of Heads Together.

    Unfortunately we are unable to provide resources or merchandise. If you would like mental health specific resources please contact the relevant charity partner or visit Mind’s website.
