Our group has been supporting people affected by mental illness and their families for over 30 years. The group runs two programmes: the first is a monthly social club (Club 84) which offers peer support at its meetings and outings for about 8–10 people who have experienced mental ill health.

The second programme is a Carers’ Support Group which also meets monthly and is run in partnership with York Carers Centre. Members support and encourage each other and, with input from visiting speakers, are kept up-to-date with changes to local services and care. About 20 carers regularly attend meetings.
