What we're about

Helping you find your We. Because you are not alone.
Mental Health Mates is a network of peer support groups run by people with mental health issues, who meet regularly to walk, exercise and share without fear or judgement. You do not have to have a diagnosed mental health issue to join our meet-ups – everyone has mental health and we are here for everyone.

Mental Health Mates started with a single tweet in 2016, when Bryony Gordon invited others to join her for a walk around the Serpentine. Since then, it has grown to become a network of walks across the globe, supported by the team at Mental Health Mates and Wagamama, and organised by members of the community. In 2019, Mental Health Mates launched an online book club and “Celebrate You”, a campaign to promote body positivity and exercise, to further our goal of facilitating peer connection, so that everyone can find their “we”.

We began this in Kingston ON, Canada because we wanted to create a movement to walk, talk, support and connect. To help you find your "we".
