Never Mind The Stigma






Team Fundraisers

Our Never Mind The Stigma campaign provides pop-up Tonic stands at gigs, festivals and events across the UK. We provide information and informal support, as well as raising vital funds to keep Tonic services free. Our presence at events helps to increase awareness, encourage discussion, reduce stigma, and promote recovery through music. These stands also sell Tonic branded merchandise.

Tonic regularly attends and has stands at the Isle of Wight Festival, Victorious and Boomtown. We joined The Specials on their 2016 and 2019 UK tours.

Why they need our service

Tonic Music for Mental Health's mission is to raise mental health awareness, challenge stigma and promote mental wellbeing through music and the arts.

Tonic stands reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. Our Never Mind the Stigma campaign helps people realise they are not alone, and that there is support available.

Plan and expected results

We hope to reduce stigma, encourage discussion and provide vital mental health support. Tonic stands also promote our work and raise vital funds to keep our services free for all.
