Mental Health Hub

Common mental disorders (CMDs) comprise different types of depression and anxiety with symptoms including worry, anxiety, phobias, panic, compulsions, obsessions, sleep problems, forgetfulness, fatigue and irritability.

CMDs range in severity from mild to severe and are often associated with physical and social problems. They can result in physical impairment and problems with social and occupational functioning, and are a significant source of distress to individuals and those around them. The symptoms often remain undiagnosed. If left untreated, CMDs are more likely to lead to long term physical, social and occupational disability and premature mortality.

Although usually less disabling than major psychiatric disorders, their higher prevalence means the cumulative cost of CMDs to society is great. It has been estimated to cause one fifth of days lost from work in Britain. In the United Kingdom, every year mental illness, largely CMD, costs the economy an estimated £70 billion (equivalent to 4.5% of GDP)

The directive of the WP&UP Mental Health Hub is to provide education, resources and support across a range of platforms (web, app, group, one-to-one and referral) to deliver a two part plan firstly promoting recovery then leading to sustainable long term wellbeing for all members of the WordPress community.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows WP&UP to claim tax back on eligible donations.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like WP&UP to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that WP&UP will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When WP&UP receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
