Find a support group


Rethink Mental Illness was founded over 40 years ago to give a voice to people affected by severe mental illness, we remain determined that this voice will continue to be heard. We run over 130 local support groups across England that offer a welcoming and non-judgemental space for share experiences and find support.


Our groups take many forms depending on the needs of the Group members. Groups can be for Carers only, for people who have lived experience of mental illness or both. Group meetings vary; some weekly, some monthly and others support each other by telephone and internet.

“The group means so much to so many people. Some come regularly, others occasionally. It’s a safety net and a lifeline.”
