1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year

For the past 25 years, Mary Frances Trust has worked with people in Surrey who are experiencing any kind of emotional or mental distress to help them get on with their lives again.

Anxiety and depression are among the most common problems and can affect people of all ages and from all backgrounds.

We provide wellbeing support for stress, anxiety, depression, bipolar, hoarding and any other mental or emotional health issues through one-to-one sessions, courses, groups and activities. We are a LGBT friendly charity, our services are open to all.

We are based in Leatherhead but also provide services across Epsom and Ewell, Mole Valley, Banstead and Elmbridge from a variety of venues.

25 donations for 25 years

This year we celebrate 25 years of supporting Surrey residents with their mental health and emotional wellbeing. Last year we supported 2,404 people, helping them to find hope and improve their mental wellbeing.

“I wouldn’t have gotten through this time without the Mary Frances Trust, and I am so grateful for all the support I have been offered.” – Meghan

“I feel I have taken back control of my life and learnt how to cope in the future. I recommend the Mary Frances Trust to everyone.” – Lee

But too many people are still struggling alone. In the UK, one in four people will experience a mental health issue each year, with 70-75% of people with a diagnosable mental illness receiving no support at all. Last year there were 6,507 deaths by suicide in the UK. These people need your help.

With your support, we want to help 300 more people like Meghan and Lee by providing them with the support they need to turn their lives around. To do this we need your help.

We need 25 donations of £25, one donation for each of the 25 years we have been supporting Surrey residents with their mental health and emotional wellbeing. £25 could help fund a session worker for a peer support group for up to 12 people, showing them that they are not alone and giving them the support needed to regain hope for a better tomorrow.

Without your help, too many people will continue to struggle alone.

Don’t wait. Help change someone’s life today, by donating £25.
