Project information

Mental health charity Chasing the Stigma (CTS), founded by suicide survivor, Jake Mills, teamed up with Mashbo to create the Hub of Hope – a digital platform bringing grassroots and national mental health services together in one place for the first time ever.

Using the location of web browser or mobile devices, the cloud-based web application allows anyone, anywhere to find the nearest source of support for any mental health issue as well as providing a ‘talk now’ button, connecting users directly to the Samaritans.

To date the Hub of Hope has received more than 15,000 unique visits from 751 different cities and towns across 59 countries. It is currently the biggest and most comprehensive resource of its kind, with more than 1,000 validated support networks already registered.
