During the last twenty five years he extended his interest in mental health particularly through his interfaith work and spirituality. In furtherance of his concern in the late 90s he became a founding member of the Advisory Council of the Three Faiths Forum (a national forum of the three Abrahamic faiths) and co- chaired its medical group. He founded and chaired The Jewish Society for the Mentally Handicapped in 1976 and was later a trustee for many years of the merged Ravenswood Foundation (now Norwood, of which HM The Queen is Patron, the organisation provides residential care and services for people with learning disabilities).
Extending his interest across the whole spectrum of mental health, in 1989 he founded The Jewish Association for Mental Illness, (JAMI) of which he remains Honorary Life President. Through his initiative JAMI is now the largest Jewish Mental Health service provider in the UK.
Martin was invited and served on the advisory committees on both MIND and MENCAP in the 1980s. Also on an advisory review committee on the Mental Health Act.

He has organised, chaired and presented at numerous seminars and conferences on mental health, religion and spirituality topics, and continues to do so. He has written many papers, contributed to books and has appeared on radio and TV on several occasions.
He is currently researching for a PhD in spirituality and holistic theology.
For eleven years Martin served as a mentor for The Princes Trust.

About [cached]

Following the closure of the HEA in 2000, and the establishment of the National Institute for Mental Health in England (NIMHE), the small spirituality group initially chaired by Dr Lynne Friedli, of which Martin Aaron was a founder member, moved to continue its work under the auspices of "Mentality" at the offices of the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health, which acted as its secretariat.

With the growth of the Forum and the increase in its activities, in 2003 The Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health decided to end their secretariat of the Forum, and it was at this time that it was proposed and agreed that Martin Aaron should take over the chair. During the following two years with its continued expansion, the Forum was registered as a company limited by guarantee in May 2003, and as a charity with the Charity Commission.
