Sutton Mental Health Foundation was founded for the benefit of people with experience of mental distress, and their carers, resident in the London Borough of Sutton, by providing facilities for recreation or other leisure-time occupation in the interests of social welfare, with the object of improving quality of life.

Our priorities are to meet people’s personal and social needs, and to meet the need for people to exert their rights and realise opportunity and have a voice.

Vision:

A community in Sutton which values mental wellbeing and understands how to respond positively to anxiety and distress.

Mission Statement:

We work together to promote mental wellbeing, resilience and recovery from mental distress.

Our Core Values:

  • We do all that we can to keep people safe.
  • We always welcome and listen to people who want to take part in what we do.
  • We work together to achieve our goals, respecting the views and beliefs of others and their right to be different.
  • We are honest with each other and behave responsibly and with integrity.
  • We acknowledge and resolve disagreements.
  • We are resilient and encourage each other when things are difficult.
  • We respect each others work and are open to innovation and new ideas.

How we work:

  • We offer safe places for people to meet and seek support without being judged.

  • We support each other, recognising that everyone has something to give.
