About us

We are here for people in Sutton whose mental health has had a severe impact on their lives.

What we do

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.

Our quarterly magazine, The Voyager, is written, compiled, and edited by our service users. It provides a comprehensive and regularly updated directory of local mental health services as well as entertaining articles, opinion pieces, art and poetry.

We try to put the views of the people who use our services at the heart of all we do; our staff and volunteers have all lived and/or shared experience of mental distress, which helps make our service supportive and inclusive.

During the lockdown we have had to move to a telephone service and we are beginning to develop our activities online. This has meant taking great strides in our use of technology, and we are now working to extend this to the people who use our services.
