How?

We do this in 6 ways:
• by providing immediate support in crisis situations
• by supporting people in their own homes with individualised care and practical support
• by providing day services including social and educational groups, drop-in facilities, and supporting recovery and continued well-being
• by providing counselling to young people within their schools, and to adults in the community
• by supporting carers, family and friends through education and information
• by raising awareness to overcome misconceptions around mental health
