The Mental Health Foundation is targeting a direct mail fundraising campaign at 12,000 warm supporters that also asks for help in lobbying the Government to improve access to psychological therapies on the NHS.

The charity is one of five organisations leading the We Need to Talk campaign, which is demanding wider access to psychological therapies. It says it hopes to keep its donors engaged by involving them in key policy and campaigning issues.

The mail pack focuses on two service users who benefited from NHS-funded 'talking therapies'. It asks for a monthly donation of between £3 and £15 to help pay for the campaign.
