Sutton Mental Health Foundation Drop in Centre Visit

I went along to the drop-in centre in Belmont along with some other members of the Health and Well Being Scrutiny Committee to see the work of the Foundation in action.

The Foundation is an independently managed charity which offers additional services to people with mental health issues.

We were shown around the centre by David Jones and Carol Jacques the service manager and I had the opportunity to look in on a creative writing group.

David talked to us about some of the outreach work being undertaken. We heard about the peer support programme and spoke to a volunteer who had undergone the special training to become a peer supporter. The local NHS mental health trust is very supportive of this programme.
