Who we support

Mental Health is everyone’s business

In fact, it already is when you think that 25% of people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year, and up to 10% of people in England will experience depression in their lifetime.

Our focus for mental health is recovery. In short, enabling people to gain control of their mental health, and building resilience to manage good emotional wellbeing through skills development and coping strategies.

Each journey to recovery is unique

That’s why we put the person at the centre of their own support. We offer our Recovery Pathway Service in residential settings that are staffed around the clock. We provide an environment where people can focus on their abilities and pre-existing skills to achieve personal goals and a sense of identity. We know our approach works – we’ve reduced psychiatric hospitalisations and helped people live more effectively in their community through education and support networks.

We support Mental Health Awareness Weeks every year and share the stories of those we support to spread awareness. Glen has shared his fantastic story with us about how changing to a healthy diet and lifestyle has helped increase his mood, his state of mind and has allowed him to regain his self-worth.

It’s estimated that a mix of anxiety and depression causes one fifth of days lost from work in Britain.

How can we help?

Of course, building back confidence and good health takes time and setbacks happen, but we’re committed to providing new and creative ways to support people on their recovery journey. Be it through 1:1 support with your support worker to achieve goals, or support that is enhanced through accessing the creative arts, our Recovery Pathway Service provides the essential networks. So people can grow and learn as individuals and build their confidence and trust to be safe and take risks.
