Ampersand is a mental health and wellbeing magazine which amplifies the voices of our community, allows them to benefit from creativity as self-care, and provides them with a space to share their experiences. This builds understanding and connection, by making those with similar experiences feel less alone and providing a window into alternate perspectives.

We strive to be as inclusive and intersectional as possible. We understand that mental health is uniquely personal, and recognise that it is shaped by people’s experiences. Not everything in this magazine will be for everyone, but we hope you find one thing to try, read about an experience you identify with, or feel a little more hopeful that things can get better. 



Our key stories, articles, and features can be accessed for free online. We regularly upload new content – keep an eye out for some of the highlights from our Moving On issue in the coming days.


We offer pay what you can afford subscriptions to our exclusive bi-monthly pdf digimag (which you can read online or download) and a variety of extra content. Subscribe below for as little as £1 per month


In order to platform real experiences, we need real voices. That’s where you come in. Anyone can submit a pitch or artwork to Ampersand. Our submissions are always open, but we also put out regular calls for submissions on a particular theme or topic. If you would like to find out more about our submissions process, take a look at our guidelines, and access the submission forms. You can find all of that below.
