Our peer support groups

Our groups are run by volunteers, many of who have lived experience of mental illness either personally or in a caring role. We have over one hundred and forty groups meeting across the country and everyone is unique because they grow and develop according to the needs and aspirations of those who use them. What they have in common is the support, understanding and acceptance one can only get from someone who has been where you are.

The difference they make

Groups can help you build self-confidence, become more informed and this may lead to you becoming more in control of your life. They help you feel you are not so alone. Joining a Rethink Mental Illness group opens up opportunities to get involved with our national work. At Rethink Mental Illness we put the experience of those we support at the heart of everything we do.
