Rehabilitation and recovery

Through this service we provide support for service users with serious mental illness or who are exhibiting poor functioning in relation to activities of daily living, and instability of mental state with both positive and negative symptoms.

Different parts of this service include:

  • Targetting service users, who have demonstrated high levels of need through multiple admissions, poor engagement with services, limited responses to treatment and increased vulnerability or risk due to symptoms or neglect.
  • Individualising care planning to enhance coping strategies and build on service user’s strengths
  • Working in a multi-agency context to deliver joined up care packages, which meet the psychosocial needs of service users. This will involve developing treatments and a full range of social and psychological interventions
  • Promoting social inclusion, well being and reducing stigma
  • Improve the quality of life for each service user
  • Addressing the needs of carers and seeking to restore or improve functioning within families through psycho-education and support
  • Promoting active and full engagement of service users in their own care
