This is a month in which everyone comes together to promote advocacy for mental health support, share their stories and raise money for charities such as Mind and CALM. Millions of pounds are raised every year in the UK alone and thousands of people share their stories and pitch in, whether that be doorstep work such as asking for donations or volunteering at their local Mind charity shop.
