Today we launch two new services which means we’re able to help make recovery a reality for even more individuals.
Our new Leicestershire Life Links community based service will provide drop-in, inreach and peer support services across the county.
And our new Bristol Mental Health Employment Service has also gone live as part of an innovative new integrated mental health system in the city.
A broad range of integrated services is being provided by nearly 20 organisations with specialist expertise and experience, coming under the umbrella of Bristol Mental Health. This includes community mental health (including assessment and recovery, crisis support, early intervention in psychosis and complex psychological interventions), community rehabilitation, dementia wellbeing and assertive engagement.
Our employment service is one of the first elements of the new system to go live. We’re working in partnership with Mental Health Matters, Windmill Hill City Farm and the Bristol Somali Resource Centre to provide specialist employment support to people with a mental health problem that is affecting their ability to retain, or seek, employment.
