About us

Who we are

For over 30 years, Sutton Mental Health Foundation has worked in the London Borogh of Sutton with adults whose mental health has had an impact on their lives. We support people in the community, helping to keep them well and active and helping them to have a voice in mental health care in the borough.

We run a range of services from our centre in Belmont; a drop in 3 days per week with an affordable lunch and activities themed around the 5 ways to wellbeing, including line dancing, yoga, mindfulness and art.  From time to time we also offer courses and talks, along with peer led activities including outings, meals and  our walking group.Our support workers can offer a listening ear and help with small issues that may be worrying you.

If you need more specialist help or advice, for example with benefits or housing, debt or employment issues, appointments are available with our housing support worker or other local partners including Cranstoun Inspire and Citizens Advice Sutton, who run pop up advice sessions at the centre.

During the winter we run a seasonal Sunday Drop In with cooked lunch for those needing a bit of support during the darkest months.

We also run an Peer support service and train people who have experienced mental health issues to become Intentional Peer Support workers, offering non-judgemental emotional support for individuals and groups. Our Peer support workers work across the community supporting people individually and at A&E, Springfield Hospital and Sutton Crisis Cafe.

Our Crisis Cafe service runs 7 evenings a week, 365 evenings a year and offers a non clinical, non judgemental safe space and a listening ear for adults in mild to moderate mental health crisis.

SMHF also supports service users to have a say in the designing and commissioning of local mental health services, through Sutton 1in4 and the Sutton Mental Health (Service Users) Commissioning Advisory Group. In the past, service users have been involved in developing safeguarding initiatives, training on the use of restrictive practices and evaluating supported housing.

We have a hardworking and committed team, who are people-focussed.  We try to put the views of the people who use our services at the heart of all we do; many of our staff and volunteers have lived and/or shared experience of mental distress, which helps make our services person-centered, supportive and inclusive.
