Geographical remit: 


The promotion of social inclusion amongst people who are socially excluded from society or parts thereof as a result of mental ill-health, through the promotion of creative events which foster social connection and allow for the exploration of mental illness and social recovery.

Mental Fight Club gives mental health users a voice and a place where they are safe to be themselves and be part of community through creative events - art, singing, photography. The service provision is a user led and organised by those who have lived experience of mental ill health.


Currently the organisations runs a café every Monday based at the crypt of St George the Martyr church in Southwark. It is called the Dragon Café and is open to everyone from midday to 8.30pm free to come and take part in a wide range of activities - creative and physical e.g. tai chi, massage, football as well as mindfulness sessions. The space includes a café which serves wholesome vegetarian food which is charged at a reasonable price.
Mental Fight Club is also developing a dialogue between users of mental health services and psychiatrists to improve the service provision- this initiative is called recreate psychiatry
