Enduring Mental Health Enduring mental health services

Building trust and focusing on stability

The term enduring mental health refers to those with long-term mental health problems, typically schizophrenia or a severe affective disorder. We can help when the symptoms are to such a degree that the person experiences a substantial impairment, such as an inability to care for themselves independently, sustain relationships or work.

The people we help care for tend to display prominent and severe symptoms. And like everyone, they’ll be prone to some ups and downs. Which may have led to a relapse of their condition, and in some cases intervention and admission to acute mental services would be needed. From time to time they may also be a risk to their safety or that of others.

We aim to minimise these relapses and admissions to other mental health services. Our skilled and dedicated team quickly recognise the change in presentation and act in a decisive and timely manner to minimize the impact of those changes.

At our homes, we promote positive therapeutic relationships with the help of carefully chosen professionals who share our empathy and understanding. We work hard to earn the trust of individuals in our care, allowing them to express their concerns, negotiate options, and build an understanding of their condition. Between us, and over time, we help individuals to overcome barriers, identify solutions, and establish control over their lives.
