Dear All

I've just been asked if I know of a pen pal scheme for people who use (have used) mental health services. I've not come across any and was wondering if any one here has.

thanks

D

Rethink had one for it's voices people and MIND had the mindwaves contact list which they had to close because of antisocial behaviour, i think it's still going with box nos though

I'm not exactly sure what this would mean david? I guess this forum is a kind of pen pal scheme in itself :).

I think the person was just interested in corresponding with other service users as a way of reducing isolation. I'm going to tell her about the forum, but she may well not have internet access.

also thanks for the suggestions ramboghettouk, I'll pass them on as well.
