Welcome to Rethink Mental Illness Manchester support group. This group and our meetings are managed and led by volunteers and is supported by and registered with Rethink Mental Illness. Our group aims to provide an opportunity for people who experience mental health difficulties to come together for mutual peer support.

We run a general support peer support meeting on Thursday evenings, for anyone experiencing difficulties with mental health regardless of whether they have a diagnosis or are involved with mental health services, as well as families and carers.

All our meetings include and are open to their families and carers. As a peer-led group, we find that one of our most valuable offers is that members are able to feel comfortable talking about their experiences with others in a similar situation. Members often share suggestions based on how they overcame similar challenges in their lives, though sometimes just the opportunity to talk can help reduce feelings of isolation. As well as weekly meetings we also hold regular social events and outings.

If you wish to find out more, or want to sign up to our newsletter, please do send us an email or message.
