Who is the service for?
We work specifically with men with a diagnosed and enduring mental illness. They may also be experiencing other co-occurring symptoms such as substance misuse, personality disorder or other health issues.
It is important to put individuals at the heart of their own care and support planning, ensuring a meaningful recovery process. We work closely with all individuals residing, or planning to reside at Countisbury House. Using person-centred approaches, we work towards independence and recovery.
The service uses a combination of the Recovery Philosophy and a Relational Security framework to inform boundaried therapeutic processes. Our aim is to ensure support for individuals to maximise their independence and identify appropriate move-on accommodation. This is an inclusive process with the individual being at the heart of their own care planning with clinical, care-managed support.
