Mental Health Awareness Week
Black Country Mental Health
About this fund
A fund by Toucan
For Mental Health Awareness Week 2022, we’ve partnered with eight amazing charities to raise vital funds for those suffering with mental health problems.
1 in 4 people admit to experiencing mental health problems. But the causes and symptoms are far reaching and often misunderstood.
Negative mental health can affect anyone, from any walk of life. The diverse range of charities in this fund reflect that.
With one single donation, you can help all eight charities and the people that rely on them.
Mental Health Awareness week is from Monday 9 May to Sunday 15 May 2022
