1 in 4 people will be affected by mental illness - make a difference today!


Your sponsored event could transform the lives of people with mental illness or epilepsy today!

Fundraising for BasicNeeds is a great way to help raise awareness on mental health as well as transforming the lives of poor people with mental illness who are in desperate need of assistance.

Your event or activity can be large or small, it doesn’t matter. All you need is the drive to get out there and do something amazing that will help affected people.

BasicNeeds can support you in your sponsored event by providing you with: leaflets, flyers and information to give to your supporters, and marketing your event using our social media channels.

We are also happy to support in setting up your own event page via:

    “As a neuroscientist, I appreciate the close connection between brain and mind..a healthy mind is arguably even more important than a healthy body. It’s central to our sense of self, to who we are – our well-being, from when we wake up, through our relationships with close others and work colleagues, to a good night’s sleep at the end of the day. And yet modern medicine does not understand the workings of the mind, and many societies around the world neglect or even demonise mental health problems. Mental health needs a holistic approach……BasicNeeds is committed to developing mental health services in countries (where) very little currently exists.”
