We are a Peer Support Mental Health Charity, providing a safe environment for you to come and chat. We do not offer counselling or therapy, but what we can do is offer a friendly, welcoming environment and listen extremely well. Plus we make a great cup of tea!
If we aren’t the right place for you, we endeavour to ensure you leave us with the information you need to find the correct service and support for you.
In the event of a crisis, please use one of the contacts on our Crisis Support Page. Thank you!
Anthony was a lovely, warm young man with a brilliant sense of humour and a smile that could light up a room. He was popular, energetic and intelligent, but sadly struggled with bi-polar disorder from the age of 18.
Anthony struggled with a 12-year battle with the disorder, during which, he was constantly in and out of hospital, sometimes struggling to cope with the debilitating side effects of strong medications.
Anthony died by suicide on 31st March 2013. He was just 30 years old.
The Anthony Seddon Centre
Anthony’s family struggled to access adequate support in the aftermath of his death and vowed to continue his legacy by helping others in similar situations and by educating the wider population about mental health.
This has grown into what it is The Anthony Seddon Fund today, through the sheer hard work and determination of Anthony’s family and all the dedicated volunteers through the last 7 years. If you’d like to see our journey from the start, please check out Our Journey Page.
The Aims of The Anthony Seddon Fund
- Advance awareness and educate the general public, in particular children and young people, in all areas relating to mental health and well-being.
- Improve the quality of life of those affected by mental health issues, their families, friends and carers in Tameside by promoting their physical and mental health through support, education, practical advice and signposting to other local services.
- Work alongside a wide variety of other organisations and agencies to help us to meet these objectives.
