What is Scarborough Survivors?

Scarborough Survivors is a registered charity founded in 1994 by service users who wanted to ensure that their voice was clearly heard within the Mental Health arena. It quickly became renowned for its work and was used as a model for similar groups set up around the country. As part of its work it offers a local self-supporting group covering Scarborough and surrounding areas, and is made up entirely of people with direct experience of mental health problems, either personally or as a carer, close relative or friend.

As a user-led organisation, the emphasis is on self-help and sharing information gained from personal experience. A key element of Survivors’ work is to represent the voice of the service user on a wide range of committees and groups locally.

Membership of the organisation is free and open to anyone over 16 with personal experience of mental illness.
