Long and enduring mental health problems cause isolation, lack of confidence and discrimination. We’re here to change this.
What’s the issue?
Mental health problems are common. Up to 1 in 4 people have experienced mental illness.
Stressful events such as losing a job, relationship issues, bereavement or money issues can lead to mental illness. But there can be other factors, like a family history of mental illness.
For people with diagnosed mental health problems, having access to the right tools and support can make all the difference.
We know that people’s recovery journeys progress at different paces and people need different levels of support along the way. Our community based support programme has offered free groups, intensive programmes and personalised services for those aged 11 and up. Designed to enable people to live the life they choose our services enhance wellbeing, build confidence and end isolation.
We cluster services around:
Active and Physical Wellbeing, Community Befriending and Personalised Support, Creative Wellbeing, Employment Skills Building, Educational and Therapeutic Wellbeing, Hub Services, Life Skills, Specialist Groups and Young People.
Many of our services are delivered in partnership with statutory organisations and other charitable organisations.
We know that the need for community based recovery services continues to grow. We also know that funding is a challenge. We provide free groups, intensive programmes and personalised services designed for all needs and budgets.
