Where your money goes
Help transform the lives of people with mental health problems when they need it most.
One in four people experience a mental health problem. And according to a government report about 75% of them never receive NHS help. Please give a gift to support someone affected by mental illness, who has nowhere else to turn.
All the money you fundraise makes things better for people with mental health problems by funding projects that help people to feel supported, to stay active and to be more involved in their communities.
Your support really counts.
DONATE NOW to our charity - South West London & St Georges MH NHS Trust Charitable Fund.
The South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust Charitable Fund works in partnership with the Trust to invest in and promote projects that will make a tangible benefit to staff, service users and carers in south west London. We are Making Life Better Together by supporting initiatives, raising awareness and breaking down barriers for our communities in south west London.
Why we are here
Anyone can experience a mental health problem; they affect one in four of us every year.
Our Charity exists to fund the people and projects striving to improve care, support recovery and prevent mental illness. There are already examples of initiatives that add value above and beyond the limits of what can be funded by the NHS and go the extra mile in improving people’s lives.
Our charity steps into the space between the services the NHS Trust provides, to enhance the patient experience and make us an even better place to work.
We do everything we can to Make Life Better Together for people who come to us for help. From providing funding for special projects or patient and family support to the transformation of our local mental health hospitals into more comfortable and welcoming environments. Your support can make these things happen.
With your help we can help improve the lives of our patients, their carers and families as well as our staff who look after them.

What can I expect at CAMHS?
When you first come to CAMHS you may feel nervous about your appointment that’s normal, but we will do our best to make you feel comfortable and to move at a pace that suits you.
Most young people find that talking and trying out different solutions to their problems helps them. Some young people also need medication.
Coming to CAMHS does not mean you’re ‘mental’, ‘strange’ or ‘different’. In fact, 1 in 10 young people has a diagnosable mental health disorder and 1 in 4 people overall in the UK struggles with poor mental health.
