Mental Health issues can affect anyone, from any walk of life, at any time.
Adult Social Care Mental Health recovery service aims to support people to live a healthy, safe and independent life by:
- treating each person as an individual; working collaboratively
- focusing on recovery and strengths
- reducing social isolation
- working alongside Health professionals; reducing hospital admissions
- looking holistically at what a person wants to achieve, and the practical support needed
- promoting choice; working flexibly and responding to changes
Support can take place both in the community and in specialist building bases by assessing with each person what is most appropriate.
Day and Community Support Services provide educational, social, therapeutic and leisure activities both in specialist and community settings. See 'related pages' below for service contact details.
Outreach Services support people to live independently in their own homes.
Accommodation Services support people in a staffed environment
