Helping adults with mental health needs remain independent

Our vision is to support people with mental health needs to live in a place called home, surrounded by the people they love and with access to the things they choose to do.

We're working closely with partners in health, housing and the independent and voluntary sectors to ensure the right accommodation and support is available at the right time and in the right place. By doing this, we aim to help people stay well and have greater choice and control over their lives.

Our aim is that adults aged 18-67 years old with mental health needs, are only placed in a residential care setting for as short a time as possible, on a temporary basis. By working closely with those adults, their families and carers, residential care providers and health professionals, we will identify and support them to live independently within communities, doing the things that matter to them.

At the right time, support services will be stepped back to enable people have more control over their life, but if that help is needed in the future it will be available to support them to remain in their own home.
