An increasing number of people in the UK are being diagnosed with mental health problems. Such problems can affect all people of all ages. It is different in everyone and there are many differing causes; some are inherited genetically, while others are brought on by lifestyle or events.

Without the right support and interventions, a mental health illness can prevent individuals from enjoying life. Some of the more commonly known mental health problems are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Phobias
  • Bi-polar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Mental health illness can cause an individual complete or partial dysfunction within their daily lives. They may have trouble managing medications, get into debt, become more reclusive and withdrawn, personal hygiene and appearance may suffer, all further reducing self-esteem.

We provide a personalised level of care to help everyone live within the context of their mental health condition. We work closely with case workers, social workers, family members and friends to work towards planned goals.

Often, we help with the day-to-day things such as medication management, housework, preparing and cooking meals, washing, support with social activities along with friendship and emotional encouragement.
