Charles Bonnet Syndrome Support Group

Photogrpah of people sat around the table in a meeting with a cuppa 

Monthly meeting (second Tuesday of the month) at SRSB's Mappin Street Centre 10am to 12pm

This group is for people experiencing ‘Phantom Visions’ as Charles Bonnet Syndrome is often called. This can be a very worrying side effect of sight loss, where the brain tries to compensate for not seeing, by creating visual hallucinations.

Discussing this with other people who experience the same symptoms can be a huge relief, so please get in touch if you would like to join the group. They meet once a month at SRSB’s Mappin Street Centre.

Contact: 0114 272 2757 or

There is a national website for a Campaign Group called Esme's Umbrella There is lots of useful information about this condition on the site, and their aim is work towards a greater awareness of Charles Bonnet Syndrome. They also have a very useful leaflet that you can download to take to your Doctor if you suspect that you may have Charles Bonnet Syndrome in case they have not yet encountered the condition.
