User groups: Mental health service users and survivors

Region: London

BowHaven is a grassroots, co-produced, mental health charity. Our story started back in 2001 when the council wanted to close the centre, which was then being run by social services. From humble and simple beginnings of 2 groups in 2001, BowHaven now has a full timetable of 12 co-produced groups covering a wide range of key mental health areas. We have also firmly established ourselves as one of the main mental health organisations serving the needs of the Tower Hamlets community. Our groups are all long term groups, because at BowHaven we want members to not only become well through attending our centre, but crucially and just as importantly remain well. BowHaven also operates from the principle that each member is the ultimate expert in his or her own recovery and wellbeing. This means that members have the choice around how long they access the groups for, and how often they attend.
