The Hub of Hope is a UK-wide mental health signposting tool that was launched by the charity in 2017. It is a free app that provides access to 24/7 crisis support and access to more than 3,500+ mental health support groups and services.
In just four years the Hub of Hope has grown from a simple spreadsheet of services to become the UK’s go-to mental health signposting tool, recently cited by the Secretary of State as the sole pathway to find local mental health support, in a letter to 3.6m people who had previously been on the shielding list. The charity has also been working closely with NHS UK which, since May 2021, has directed more than 91,000 people to the Hub of Hope from its NHS.uk website.
Chasing the Stigma CEO and founder, Jake Mills, said:
“This Christmas we want as many organisations, businesses and individuals as possible to spread hope and help far and wide, by sharing the Hub of Hope
“The festive season is difficult for so many people and we often see people signposting to just a handful of national services, such as Mind, Calm and the Samaritans. By sharing the Hub of Hope, everyone will be signposting to these excellent services, who we work proudly alongside, as well as thousands more, giving people struggling with their mental health the gift of choice.
“The Hub of Hope offers a choice of support, from peer support to NHS services, to how they want to access help, which may be over the telephone or in-person. The more options people have access too, the more likely they are to find the right help for themselves, which can be life changing and even life-saving.
