Croydon APCMH was founded in 1988 by families concerned that their relatives who were enduring mental health problems were not being cared for spiritually and pastorally. It was originally a branch of the national BA / APCMH, and then in 2003 became an independent charity, while remaining affiliated. The objectives of the Association are ‘to enhance the quality of life, self respect and spiritual growth of those affected by mental health or emotional difficulties’. Croydon APCMH aims to help all those who come to them to realise their full potential as individuals and participating members of society and so help improve the quality of their lives – especially in and around the London Borough of Croydon.
The group is based at St Mildred’s Community Centre in Addiscombe, and runs a number of weekly drop-ins, based at St Mildred’s and two other locations, offering a welcome to anybody who has or is recovering from mental illness or distress. They’re a great place to meet and make friends and enjoy a friendly chat. There is also a women’s group and a welfare support project.
Croydon APCMH is an independent charity affiliated to BA/APCMH. Full details about the organisation and its activities are available on its website.
