THE LUCY RAYNER FOUNDATION – LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT
The Lucy Rayner Foundation aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression and mental health challenges, especially in young adults, and to facilitate change in the way mental health is being perceived by society.

We are already into our third month of the ‘What’s On Your Mind?’ Lucy Rayner Foundation weekly podcast, where we talk all things mental health including topics such as forgiveness, addiction, social media, sleep & wellbeing, managing grief, kindness and physical activity.
