Mental Health Carers’ Service

We provide general information, advice, emotional support and guidance around your role in caring for someone with a mental illness. With our knowledge of local organisations providing specialist support, we can sign-post or refer you where necessary.  

  •     Look at how you can look after your own needs and wellbeing.
  •     We can provide resources and space to discuss a recent diagnosis.
  •     We will work with you to ensure your views are heard.
  •     We can offer some practical help and help you access more specialist advice or support.

Support can be offered face-to-face or by telephone depending on what best meets your current circumstances.

Mental Health Peer Support Group

The talks are a chance for those caring for someone with a mental illness to meet others who carry out a similar role, and to share experiences and knowledge. A guest speaker also attends, offering their insight on subjects fitting to mental health carers.

The talks are normally the first Wednesday of each month at the Mosaic Clubhouse. Spaces are limited so please contact me before attending. You can sign up to our email list to get emails before every Wednesday Talk with full information.

Dementia Carers Peer Support Group

A group specifically for people who care for someone with dementia. This is a new group we have developed with dementia carers and Alzheimer's Society Lambeth. We aim to give dementia carers a safe space where they can learn from each other, as well as from the guest speakers. 

We are launching this group as part of Dementia Action Week on Tuesday 22nd May 1:30-3:30pm at 336 Brixton Road. Please click here to read our report on the work we did with our dementia carers to design the group.

Mental Health Carers Forum

The forum is a platform for mental health carers to collectively engage with services, raise concerns and work to include carers voices in the way services are developed.

The forum generally meets on the last Thursday of the month at 336 Brixton Road. The times alternate monthly, either 11am-1pm or 6-8pm. Please see the poster below for exact dates and times.
