Our history

 

From 1994, much of our work was originally based at the Copleston Centre in Peckham. Originally therapists developed community-based outreach work, often visiting people in their homes. Social gatherings and group outings were also a very important part of the work. The therapists established important links with the Community Mental Health Teams, The Maudsley Hospital and community-based organisations such as Southside Partnership and Thamesreach.

 

Since then numerous people have benefited from the services and MHP has built on the work developed by the original team.

 

Groups and organisations we have delivered therapies for in the past and those we are currently working with include:

 

Age UK Lewisham and Southwark

Black Elderly Group Southwark

The Copleston Centre

Creation Trust

Creative Therapies Project

Kindred Minds

Notting Hill Housing

Peckham Befrienders

South London and Maudsley (SLAM)

Southwark Pensioners Centre

Together UK/Southwark Wellbeing Hub

 

Our funders have included: National Lottery Community Fund; City Bridge Trust;  Peckham Voluntary Sector Forum; Maudsley Charity; Society of Homeopaths; South London and Maudsley (SLAM) London Borough of Southwark; Southwark Primary Care Trust; Wates Foundation.
