About Us

WHO WE ARE

UPRAWR Mental Health Foundation is a brand new mental health charity committed to helping people between the ages of 18 and 35 who can relate to the rock and alternative music scene with which the UPRAWR brand has become synonymous.

UPRAWR launched nine years ago as a rock, pop punk and metal club night. In that time we’ve operated across the UK, opened music studios and launched a music publishing company.

Mental health issues are becoming more and more prominent within our musical community. Artists are speaking out about the problems they’ve had to endure, the general public are slowly opening up and, sadly, we’ve seen some tragic high-profile suicides from bands that many of us at UPRAWR grew up listening to.

With these rising numbers of young people suffering from mental health issues in the UK it seems obvious more needs to be done to help.

We think we’ve found a way we CAN help, and are now committed to doing everything we are able to improve the lives of those people.

WHY WE DO IT

Because we want to help.

Here at UPRAWR one of the most basic and fundamental beliefs on which we’ve built our company is that life should be enjoyed.

We believe that no-one should have to suffer, and certainly not suffer alone. So, if there’s a chance we can help . . we’ll try.

WHAT WE DO

We offer 100% free counselling to people aged 18 to 35 who can relate to the alternative and rock music scene.

We run our counselling sessions from UPRAWR Studios where we’ve turned our practice rooms into cool and relaxed counselling suites so people can come along and talk to counsellors they're able to relate to in a non-clinical environment.

We run as an independent charity, receiving no NHS funding – hopefully lightening the load so those people we cannot help have more chance of receiving aid elsewhere.

HOW WE DO IT

Our money is largely raised through sales of CDs, vinyl and merchandise sold though our online shop.

Bands receive 100% of everything they are owed and all sales are chart eligible. This means that by buying your music though us you’re not only helping people get the help they need you’re also helping the bands you love support themselves. Right now in the UK there seems to be an epidemic of amazing bands that can sell thousands of tickets having to hold down day jobs to support themselves. This is simply because there are more people stealing their music though illegal downloads than there are folk that are paying a fair price for it. We believe that bands deserve to be able to live off their music.

Operating in this way means everyone involved gets paid and we can put 100% of the retailer profit into our charity. Simply put . . . everyone gets paid other than the shop.

Once we’ve raised the funds we employ trained counsellors to work from our studios. We turn those spaces into bespoke counselling suites so people have a relaxed and welcoming environment in which to talk.

A standard run of sessions will last six weeks, but this can be extended as necessary.

We also run fundraising events, hold non-profit gigs and work with a long list of amazing people and companies that support us and help fundraise – which enables us to employ more counsellors and thus help more people.

OUR MISSION

To help improve the mental health and emotional resilience of the people who love rock and alternative music.

Hopefully by doing so we’ll also help the bands and artists we love create sustainable careers.
