Welcome to Sutton Mental Health Foundation
We are continuing our telephone support service, but if you need to see someone face to face you can now book an appointment with a support worker. It could be for practical help - like filling in a form, for crisis support, or for a much needed chat. Each appointment lasts an hour. If you need internet access, you can also make a booking to use one of our computers for an appointment, a meeting, to check your emails or even for for some online shopping. Our Citizens Advice sessions, and other online activities are all continuing as before.
For more information, or to book an appointment go online at https://smhf.org.uk/appointments or call 020 8770 0172. We hope to offer more face to face activities in the near future, depending on the changing situation – so keep watching this space.
This month we are launching an important consultation on a Crisis Café for Sutton - please take a few minutes to fill in our on-line survey and give us your views on what this service should look like.

Unfortunately this session has been postponed, a new date will be announced soon.
We are here for people in Sutton whose mental health has had a severe impact on their lives.
In normal times, we run a drop-in service in Belmont which is open 5 days across the week. We offer a home cooked lunch, advice, support and activities based around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
Through our Intentional Peer Support service, we offer non-judgemental emotional support for individuals and groups. For those experiencing mental and emotional distress this can be a real lifeline.
We also support people who use mental health services to have a voice in the designing and commissioning of the services they receive, through Sutton 1in4 and Sutton Mental Health Commissioning Advisory Group.
We send out regular e-updates of our latest news and activities, you can access recent issues below.
