What it means to be a Mental Health Support Worker in Supported Living & Community Outreach settings…
Many people associate Support Work with care of the elderly or residential care for people with learning difficulties. However, there are many other areas within the wider youth & adult Health and Social Care sector.
Our company is a Supported Living provider for adults and we assist service users with a wide range of support needs, including: mental health conditions; alcohol and substance addictions; learning disabilities; autism/aspergers; trauma; self-harm & suicide attempts; personality disorder, and other behaviours that challenge.
Our aim is to assist service users to develop or re-gain the greatest possible independence. Based on individual needs and Person Centred Support Planning, we offer guidance and support in the following areas:
Finding accommodation, keeping a clean & tidy environment and paying bills
Benefit applications & correspondence
Finances, budgeting & debt management
Healthy eating, meal planning & cooking
Physical and mental wellbeing
Symptom & behaviour management
Communication & interactions with other people
Maintaining relationships with friends and family
Personal interests & hobbies
Trips & holidays
Education, skills development & employment
Accessing the community & use of public transport
Building community links
