The Lucy Rayner Foundation Supporting & Raising Awareness for Mental Health
Welcome to The Lucy Rayner Foundation.
We provide a range of mental health support services, including mental health support groups throughout Surrey. We passionately believe that mental health support should be accessible to all and are strong advocates of raising mental health awareness, especially among young adults.
Established in 2013, The Lucy Rayner Foundation has several key objectives:
To raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression and other mental health issues in young adults
To provide emotional support and education to young adults with mental health issues and their families
To work alongside other charitable organisations who have the same objectives as our charity
To facilitate change in the way mental health is perceived by society
To build emotional resilience in young adults
To enable young adults to thrive in our society
Mental Health Week – Finding Wilson (Fact Not Fiction)
In 2020, The Lucy Rayner Foundation collaborated with Film company ‘Fact not Fiction’ to create a short film called ‘Finding Wilson’ which highlights the story of a young girl named Jess, suffering with her mental health. The film also shares how she was being bullied at school and how this caused her mental health to decline.
The film includes themes such as; Anxiety (which is the theme for Mental Health Week 2023), PTSD, Depression and Suicidal Ideation.
This Mental Health Week we are really excited to be able to release the film publicly for the very first time!

Raising Mental Health Awareness
Did you know that each year approximately 1 in 4 people experience a problem with their mental health?
We firmly believe prevention is better than cure, and for us, that means giving people a voice to talk about their feelings without shame or judgement.
We aim to break down barriers around mental health awareness in schools, universities and workplaces, and we do this by holding regular half-day talks and workshops throughout the Surrey region.
