We're a local mental health charity that are doing things differently.
We aim to be an organisation that responds sensitively and thoughtfully to people with mental health problems; that understands that mental health problems are deeply entrenched in the inequalities and deprivations of class, race, gender and sexuality.
We don’t believe that these problems can be treated by a ‘one size fits all’ approach, but instead need a unique and ethical response to the individual needs of each person. We aim to respond to high levels of need in the Lambeth adn Southwark boroughs by offering a range of services so people can choose the support that feels right for them.
Currently, we run a free inner city psychotherapy service for people who haven't found short term CBT type treatments helpful. We run a number of peer support groups. We have an information line for those seeking advice. We're on wards making sure impatients have a voice too. We hold annual lectures with industry experts to explore recent develops. We're out and about in the local community listening to what people need.
