Welfare Rights - Hear Us Croydon

“  Our purpose is to promote, educate, communicate and empower, for the benefit and interest of people affected by mental health issues
As Croydon’s only service user group for people with severe and enduring mental illness, our organisation is 100% service user run. This strength gives us a unique insight into the barriers faced by our service users; particularly those also experiencing drug & alcohol misuse or leaving prison. We provide specialist peer support and personal support for our service users – people with complex mental health issues living or working in the London Borough of Croydon. Our practical, regular activities help users to cope better with daily living and helps to relieve their social, emotional and physical needs.
Hear Us is Croydon’s Mental Health Service User Group which acts as a coordinating body to facilitate, and ensure service users involvement in, the planning, delivery and monitoring of mental health services in Croydon. Helping to improve the quality of the services commissioned and delivered in Croydon.
We attend regular committee meetings with South London and Maudsley Trust (SLAM) and NHS Southwest London ICS, and other planning and monitoring meetings to represent the voice of service users by ensuring service user representation at these meetings.
Hear Us supports adults with serious mental health challenges to access financial, health and social inclusion support within the borough of Croydon, and we act to increase awareness of mental health.
