Founded in 1997, CAPITAL is led by its members, staff, trustees and supporters – all of whom have lived experience of mental distress. We were founded upon developing training for people with lived experience at a time when people had no voice, and we became the independent representation of the lived experience community in the county which influenced local mental health services. We support a membership of about 300 people, offer training, support and a framework that ensures people can lead our work. We also provide independent accredited peer support in-reach services to acute mental health wards in West Sussex, as well as monthly peer led Patient ViewPoint forums.
