Sutton Mental Health Foundation is is a community mental health support service for anyone over the age of 18 living in the London Borough of Sutton. You don't need a formal referral to take advantage of our support services, wellbeing activities & events.

Opening Hours at the Belmont Connect

The Belmont Connect "drop-in" remains closed for now, but if you are in need of support, we are open for appointments only Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10:30 am to 2:30pm.

If you feel you would benefit from some one-to-one support for your mental health, or you have a specific issue you would like someone to help you with, you can book an in-person or telephone  appointment with one of our support workers.

If you need specialist help or advice, for example with benefits or housing, family matters, debt or employment issues, telephone appointments are available on Thursday mornings, in partnership with Citizens Advice Sutton.

As restrictions continue to lift we will gradually return to mostly in-person appointments, in line with the government's recently published ‘COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021’.
