Summary

The Hub of Hope is a mental health database bringing grassroots and national mental health services together in one place. 

This enables people in the UK to:

  • Enter their location (postcode)
  • Identify local and national sources of support for their mental health need
  • Filter the list for a specific condition, for example anxiety or OCD
  • Talk directly to ‘The Samaritans’ for befriending, suicide prevention or information.

More than 1,200 validated support groups offering mental health advice and support registered with the app in the first year.

Reviews

Reviewer: Chasing the Stigma, the UK mental health charity which created the app and online resource.
Review:

“Hub of Hope believes that no matter what you're going through, you shouldn't have to do it alone. Find services local to you using geolocation technology.

The stigma associated with mental health can make it difficult to talk about, however there are services out there with people who understand and are ready to help….

…Using the Hub of Hope is completely free and confidential. You are not required to provide any personal information or pay for use. It is simply there to say, if you should ever need help, whether for you or somebody you are looking after, we’ll make it easier to find.

The Hub of Hope has already been described as a vital and lifesaving tool by charities and mental health trusts.

In less than a year since its launch, the Hub of Hope has had

  • More than 1200 support groups and charities registered
  • Over 16,500 unique users have accessed the hub
  • More than 68,000 unique page views”
