Thank you for participating in this vital campaign.

Right now, we believe too many kidney patients don't get the mental health support they need. We want to change this and your input could help improve the experiences of people living with kidney disease across the UK.

Thank you once again. You are helping us to make a big difference.

Your voice matters.
