How Do I Get Started?
You can ask your health or social work professional to refer you or alternatively you can contact us on the telephone number below. Once a referral has been received, a member of staff will arrange to visit you, you can have someone with you during this meeting. This usually takes place in your home; however an alternative venue can be arranged if necessary.
If you take up the service you will be assigned a keyworker. Your keyworker will help you develop and regularly review an individually tailored plan which meets your needs and details the specific support arrangements you have agreed.
This service is voluntary and available for as long as you need it. You can end this service whenever you wish; however we would encourage you to discuss this with your care team as part of your review.
Individual support is available between the hours of 8am to 10pm over 7 days as individually negotiated with your keyworker.
This support is provided on a 1:1 basis and focuses on your identified goals.
Our support focusses upon building on your existing strengths, increasing your confidence, increasing your social connections and natural supports and ultimately progressing your recovery. Some examples include:
- increasing your skills in managing your home or budgeting.
- developing a more structured and rewarding daily routine.
- accessing/trying out new activities or restarting old hobbies you may enjoy.
- getting more involved in your local community.
- learning new self-help skills and coping techniques.
- opportunities to meet with other people who have experienced mental health issues.
The support is focussed on developing new skills and building on existing strengths.
