Support Services

Our aim is to provide support for people within the London Borough of Sutton who suffer from mental distress.
Support can take many forms, and one of the best is mutual support. At Sutton Mental Health Foundation we support each other through regular contact, Intentional Peer Support and the Hearing Voices Group. We are outward-looking and try to establish contact with new people through our relationships with social work teams, GPs and the local Mental Health Trust. Underlying all that we do is a set of values that puts people first. We aim to be service-user led, to provide a safe and supportive environment where people can take steps to improve their wellbeing.
Our aim is to provide support for people within the London Borough of Sutton who suffer from mental distress. Connection is a key part in everything we do, it helps us to form relationships and bonds which means we can offer support to those who need it. Our three main areas of support are:

Belmont Centre

In "normal circumstances" we run a drop-in centre offering social contact, learning opportunities and support in a safe and welcoming environment to people recovering from mental distress.
