Overview

Mental Fight Club’s aim is to be an open, welcoming group which puts on exciting, well-organised and inspirational creative events and projects. Most of the paid workers and volunteers have experience of mental illness, mainly by direct personal experience but also as friends, family and carers of those with mental ill-health. The team work hard to develop ways of working together that help everyone involved with ongoing recovery and self-awareness and equip them with new skills and experience.

The Dragon Café

Our flagship creative endeavour provides a unique, relaxing café and creative space, open to all every Monday. The Dragon Café is an innovative and creative provider of social support for current, past and ongoing mental ill health offering a simple, affordable, healthy menu.

RE:CREATE Psychiatry

Is a Mental Fight Club project that emerged in 2015 from our flagship creative space, The Dragon Café, weekly arts and health pop-up in the Crypt of St George the Martyr Church in Borough.

Stemming from the learning of The Dragon Café, this is an exploratory platform to enable medical and psychiatric professionals of all levels to better understand and collaborate with people who have lived experiences of mental ill-health, and for service-users to in turn better understand medical professionals. The aim is to inspire new thinking about how mental health services can be more creative, more healing and more human for all.
