About Us

The Good Mental Health Cooperative

The Good Mental Health Cooperative (GMHC) was established as a Community Interest Company in April 2013 following a successful bid for funds.

The GMHC is a community of individuals, groups and social enterprises developing innovative approaches that promote… Good Mental Health! Our vision is to contribute to a society which values our mental and emotional health, just as we do our physical health. We aim to challenge stigma and exclusion, support and promote good mental health.

We have a management committee who oversee all our activities and fundraising efforts and volunteers who support our events and take an active role in delivering the organisational aims.

Volunteer with us

We’d love to hear from anyone who would like to support us as a volunteer. Currently, we are looking for more volunteers to join our Books Alive! project, either as ‘living books’ or as event helpers. We are also looking for volunteers to help out with projects which offer creative and wellbeing activities during 2023.
