About us

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

What we do

We run a service in Belmont which is open 3 days a week. We currently offer a tuck shop, advice, support and activities based around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.  All our activites are free, but we ask that you book either online, by calling 020 8770 0172, or ask a member of staff when you are next in.  Tuck shop prices range from 50p to £1.50.

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.
