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.

We meet at Newton Abbot library and the library and the room itself are fully accessible (there is a lift from the ground floor), and toilets are nearby on the same floor. There is provision for making hot drinks and refreshments in a small kitchen and tea and coffee will be provided but members will be advised to bring their own lunch if required. There is no parking at the library but there are many carparks within a short walking distance. The train station is about 10 minutes’ walk away and the bus station is less than 5 minutes away.

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