Everyone affected by mental illness has the ability to live fulfilling lives free of harm, stigma, and discrimination. We envision a world in which everyone has access to high-quality mental health services and communities are educated and equipped to recognise the signs of mental illness and respond with compassion and understanding. Our vision is a world in which no one feels alone or hopeless, and where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We strive to be a driving force in the prevention of mental illness-related harm, as well as to foster a culture of empathy, inclusivity, and hope.

Our 2023-24 Objectives
Counter Harm CIC was founded in 2023 with the mission of preventing the emotional and physical harms associated with mental illness through the provision of support services. Our team is committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment in which people with mental illness can receive the support and resources necessary to live fulfilling lives.
Families and individuals affected by mental illness will have access to a variety of support services, including a helpline and peer support groups. Our programmes aim to promote mental health and well-being as well as reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness.
We believe in the power of community and collaboration at Counter Harm CIC. To ensure that our service users receive the best possible care and support, we collaborate with other organisations, healthcare providers, and community groups. In addition, we collaborate with our service users, their families and involved professionals to identify their specific needs and ensure timely support.
