Earlier in the year, we opened up a survey our staff, people who use our services and the general public, to ask for your views on what you wanted to see on our website. We got a great response and we would like to thank everyone who gave their time to contribute to this process.

You told us that you liked the simple, uncluttered design of our website.  Many of you wanted to see more updates and stories about what we were doing, and where our services are and how you could access them; you wanted to get to know our staff and the organisation as a whole; and you wanted clearer, easier-to-find information about the support and services we provide.

Over the past few months we have redesigned our website using these insights, working with an organisation called RaisingIT who specialise in helping charities build websites. The process has been invaluable, learning from our peers in other charities and ‘road testing’ the site along the way to make sure it works for real people looking for support.

We’re are delighted that today, on World Mental Health Day 2018, we can finally launch our new and improved website that will help us continue to fulfil our mission and offer high-quality support and services to people across England. Hopefully you will notice:

  • Better functionality. Our new site has faster loading times, more logical navigation to help you find the information you need, and is easier to view and use on mobile and tablets;
  • More spaces for us to share our news, upcoming events and stories with you. Our fabulous teams across the country make massive differences in peoples’ lives every single day – we now have a place to shine their light.
  • Space for us to share resources and self-help materials that anyone can access with just a few clicks.

As always, we want your feedback – that way we can keep improving your resource.

We hope you enjoy exploring the site – don’t forget to bookmark it and visit us again soon, and get in touch with us to let us know what you think. Why not follow us on Twitter at @MHM_Info, to make sure you see all our latest updates?

Whatever you are doing today – enjoy World Mental Health Day and please keep your mental health safe.

- Helen Mackay, Chief Executive Officer of MHM
