We meet at the Courtenay Centre from 12.30pm to 2.30pm on the last Tuesday of every month.

COPE is a voluntary led peer-support group for families, friends, and carers of people with serious mental health illness who experience psychosis. Our group offers a safe, non-judgemental, and welcoming environment where members can meet to share experiences, signpost each other to other services and look after their well-being. We meet once a month and offer support and encouragement to one another in a respectful, confidential, and supportive space. To be heard is valuable.

There is a car park at the centre, though there are not many parking spaces. The centre recommends those who are unable to walk more than a short distance park there and all others can park in the adjoining Cricketfield Car Park – this is a Pay and Display Long Stay carpark which is connected to the centre car park via a short footpath.

The centre is a 13 min walk from Newton Abbot railway station and is well connected by buses.

The group meets in the Yellow Room. There is provision for making hot drinks and refreshments in a small kitchenette and tea and coffee will be provided but members will be advised to bring their own lunch if required.

Please drop us a line on the group email to find out more – we look forward to meeting you!
