Rethink Mental Illness improves the lives of people severely affected by mental illness through a network of local groups and services, expert information, and successful campaigning. Their goal is to make sure everyone affected by severe mental illness has a good quality-of-life.

Rethink Mental Illness' services include advocacy, employment and training, mental health services in prisons, nursing and residential care and carer support. They also provide housing services (including Lindsay House in Northampton) and some support groups (visit their website and enter your postcode to find more groups).

The Rethink Mental Illness website features extensive advice and information about mental illnesses, rights and restrictions, and living with mental illness. There is also a Carers' Hub.

The Rethink Mental Illness Advice Service (0300 500 0927) is offers practical help on issues such as the Mental Health Act, community care, welfare benefits, living with mental illness, and medication.
