Mental Health is everyone’s business
Over the course of their lives everyone struggles or has a challenge with their mental wellbeing, and some people experience a mental illness. In fact, approximately 1 in 4 people in England experience a mental health problem each year (1).
Our focus for mental health is recovery.
All our services aim to achieve the support people want, to prevent relapse and promote good health, reduce time spent in hospital, and to promote skills and self-awareness in order for a person to live a fulfilling life. There is a focus on positive relationships, strengths and wellbeing.
The ultimate goal for most people is to have secure accommodation and stable mental health, so our focus is on developing skills and coping strategies to support this, as people move through services towards being as independent as they can be.
