About the #HiddenHeroes Charity Challenge

With around one in four people experiencing significant mental health problems in their lifetime, the #HiddenHeroes working in prisons and IRCs, probation and youth justice settings across the UK are coming together to raise money for the charity Mental Health UK.

Mental Health UK brings together four national mental health charities – Rethink Mental Illness in England, Support in Mind Scotland, MindWise in Northern Ireland, and Hafal in Wales – to provide advice, information and support services across the UK to people living with mental health problems, and their families. The Charity Challenge is being organised by the Butler Trust who will pass on all donations to Mental Health UK.

If you work in the sector, you can take part through your workplace – click on the relevant country link below for more details. Or you can donate to the campaign here. [If you’re co-ordinating the Charity Challenge for your workplace, see below.]
