About Chasing the Stigma and the Hub of Hope:
Chasing the Stigma is a national mental health charity (charity number 1170757) set up by Liverpool born stand-up comedian and writer, Jake Mills following his own battle with depression and suicide attempt almost 5 years ago.
The charity aims to normalise and humanise mental health, after all, there is nothing more normal than something everyone in the world has.
Everybody in the world has mental health. Yet the fear of being judged is preventing many people from talking about it. Chasing the Stigma want to help remove that fear and unnecessary stigma, by using first-hand experiences to say ‘I have suffered. I got through it and you can too’. You are never alone.
Chasing the Stigma created the Hub of Hope, a first of its kind, national mental health database which brings together organisations and charities, large and small, who offer mental health advice and support, together in one place.
The Hub of Hope, which is free downloadable app, as well as being online at hubofhope.co.uk uses your devices location to find mental health support near you, wherever you are in the country – think of it as the Just Eat of the mental health world.
It is a first of its kind database, making help as easy as possible to find and reaffirming the message, ‘you are never alone’.
Good luck, we hope you can help us spread a very important message across the world with today's brief.
