About Messages of Hope

Messages of Hope is a Community Interest Company encouraging people to write hopeful messages for those struggling with mental health. These messages become stickers and Instagram posts spread across the UK, aiming to improve mental health and support psychiatric patients.

Messages of Hope is a Community Interest Company that was created to...

  • Support people struggling with their mental health.
  • Spread hope.
  • Prevent suicide.
  • Encourage conversations around mental health.

What We Do

Collaborative Art Projects

You will often find us out, working in the community, asking strangers to write anonymous messages of hope for people going through a difficult time. We ask these strangers to write their messages on one of our canvases, which are then displayed in the local community.

Bags of Hope

Bags of Hope is a project that is set up to give items to patients arriving on psychiatric wards. We ask for donations via our Amazon Wishlist and our JustGiving page, and we put these items into bags for patients to have when they arrive at psychiatric wards. Our goal is to ensure that nobody arrives on psychiatric wards with only the clothes on their back.

Video Projects

Messages of Hope often collaborates with other community organisations to create videos for mental health awareness days throughout the year. These videos will involve members of the public sharing their messages of hope.

Collecting Your Messages

You can submit a message of hope whenever you like via our website. We will then post the submitted messages of hope on our social media, or your message might be turned into a sticker and placed in various spots around the local community.

Participants' messages, displayed publicly, uplift and remind viewers of collective empathy. This initiative shows that small, anonymous acts of kindness can profoundly impact mental well-being, fostering solidarity and support within the community.

Life is a journey and everyone’s different. No matter how many times you fall please get back up. You don’t know what the future will bring or what's around the corner for you. Just take one step at a time no matter how small that is, even if it's a wrong turn or backwards just keep going. Lots of love from a survivor.
