We provide a wide range of national services on behalf of the NHS and local authorities, including talking therapies, crisis support, dementia care, supported housing, nursing care, and community wellbeing support.
We’re here so no one has to struggle alone. We’re a national non-profit providing high-quality integrated mental health and wellbeing services, placing people and communities at the heart of everything we do.
Everything we do is driven by our organisational values of innovation, compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence. They underpin every decision we make and package of care we offer.
Nothing describes the impact of what we do better than the people we’re here to support.
"I had an amazing experience. My therapist was incredible and really gave me the motivation and the confidence to get better and take back control of my life. I will be forever grateful."
“It’s been up and down and there have been times where I haven’t been very nice to you. But you stuck with me and you didn’t give up."
Most of us will feel anxious or panicky at some point in our lives. For example, we might get a sudden fright and feel jumpy. These feelings usually pass quite quickly. Panic attacks can feel very different. They often happen for no reason, they can happen suddenly, and can feel intense and hard to cope with.
It’s not unusual for us to feel shy or nervous at times, and many people feel anxious in settings such as parties, social gatherings, or while giving a speech. Social anxiety is more than this type of nervousness – it can feel intense, overwhelming, and can have an impact on our daily lives.
The mornings are gloomier, the days are shorter, and the weather is chillier. Seasonal changes can have a big impact on our mood, and it’s common to feel a bit out of sorts during the change of the seasons. If you’re noticing your mood changing with the season and it’s having an impact on your daily life – you might be experiencing Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
Whether it’s a friend, a family member or a colleague – feeling worried about someone else’s mental health can be difficult if you’re not sure what to do. In this article, you’ll find plenty of tips and advice on how to talk to someone else about their mental health, ways you can help them, and how to still make sure you’re taking care of yourself too.
Let's talk about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). OCD can show up in lots of different ways, so it’s important to know that it looks different for everyone.
When we’re struggling with our mental health, we might feel like we should just ‘carry on’ or tell people that we’re ‘fine’ – even when we’re not. If we broke a leg, we wouldn’t let it heal on its own. If we lost our voice, we wouldn’t just carry on without speaking. We all have a right not to feel miserable. We wouldn’t neglect our physical health, so why should we neglect our mental health?
Suicide is often a topic people choose to avoid talking about for many reasons. Sometimes we might not talk about it because it can be upsetting, sometimes we might avoid talking about it because there’s still a lot of stigma. Whatever the reason, it’s really important that we do talk about suicide in a way that raises awareness and educates. The more we talk about it, the more we can prevent it.
Feeling stressed is a common experience, especially in modern-day life! Sometimes, it might be caused by one big thing, other times it can be a mixture of smaller pressures that just keep building up over time. It might even be that there is no obvious cause, and that’s okay.
