The Bank of Lived Experience – Peer Power Supporting Community Mental Health
Would you like to join with others who live with mental health conditions in the community? We welcome you and your ideas, and your feedback to improve mental health services in Camden & Islington. We offer natural peer support, circulate opportunities for service user involvement, consultation and co-production every week, involvement in research, plus news and events related to mental health and wellbeing.

We are a local voluntary organisation that provides lived experience support and expertise within the local community to mental health service users, and organisations that involve mental health service users in co-production, primarily with Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust.

It’s Ok to not feel OK
Co-production can be simply defined as “Involvement at every stage and every level.”
Do you have feedback you would like to share about your mental health care?
Our door is always open when it comes to hearing about your experiences, whether that is related to a local service or it is something that you have found yourself that keeps you well. We would like your voice to contribute to our Bank of Lived Experience. We can use your tips to help other people or we can pass on your feedback to service managers. If you want to comment on NHS services we recommend you contribute to https://www.careopinion.org.uk/
Want to volunteer?
We can signpost to volunteering opportunities that match your skills, interest and time. Let us know what you can do, how much time you want to donate and we will take it from there!
Are you a business?
We are keen to make connections with local businesses who want to support the mental health and wellbeing of our local population and hospital patients. We can also provide the expertise of lived experience, facilitate conversations for staff, advise management and sometimes provide speakers from a lived experience perspective. Maybe you can help with donations for our Christmas appeal?
