Mental Health and Shared Lives

Date: Sep 19, 2018

1 in 4 people experience a Mental Health issue at some point in their life. It's no surprise then, that an ever increasing number of people with Mental Health needs are turning to the Shared Lives service for support.

With Shared Lives offering a safe, family environment, carers are able to build a real relationship with the people they support, and this nurturing environment aids recovery from symptoms, whilst also encouraging open conversation to overcome barriers.

We have begun developing a new Shared Lives Mental Health service alongside City of York Council, which will encompass the city and surrounding areas. It is a privilege for us to be delivering such a necessary new scheme, and we look forward to meeting prospective new carers who will offer life changing support to those who need the service most.

Our friends at Shared Lives Plus have created a wonderful short film to show how people with Mental Health needs have benefited from the service, and we'd like to share that with you. If you would like to find out more about Shared Lives Mental Health services, please contact us.
