The Dragon Café and Re:Create Psychiatry

The Dragon Café and Re:Create Psychiatry are models of support for service users and for mental health professionals

What we do

Mental Fight Club (MFC) is a charity founded, led and delivered by people with mental health experience. Having collaborated, over the last five years, with 700 arts and health organisations and individuals, and served over 8,000 users, MFC has honed a twin model of support and prevention, which uses the arts as a tool to harness the unique expertise arising from the experience of mental health. It is this expertise that MFC articulates to design and deliver solutions to the challenges currently facing the healthcare system. 

The Dragon Café is an arts and mental health space open to all. Its high-quality programme of art events, wellbeing activities and health debates attracts an audience of service users from across all walks of life, conditions and co-morbidities. Its community helps them articulate and sustain effective personal strategies of recovery. Re:Create Psychiatry engenders otherwise unattainable moments of patient-doctor learning. It helps mental health professionals articulate and sustain effective professional strategies to navigate the challenges of contemporary medical practice. 

MFC’s work has been recognised by the All Party Parliamentary  Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing and the WHO. They have collaborated with numerous arts institutions including The Wellcome Collection, The Southbank Centre, The Shakespeare Globe and Tate Modern. As it is called upon to serve a wider geographic remit, and a  yet more diverse demographic spectrum, their work continues to focus on creating more resilient and empowered patients, medical professionals and communities.
