OpenMinds

OpenMinds is a specialist mental health organisation which makes recovery from a mental illness the main focus of its intervention.
We provide practical, emotional and social support via a floating support service to adults in the community.
We work alongside clients, supporting them as they make decisions that shape their own lives and lead to meaningful and active roles in their communities.

WHAT DO WE DO?
OpenMinds offers two types of flexible support:

1) Intensive Short-term Support:
• This intervention is for those who are on the brink of a possible relapse and support is focused on preventing an admission.
• This service is also suitable for those for whom consideration is being given to discharge from their respective Home Treatment teams, with the aim of consolidating any improvements made.

2) Long-term support:
• This intervention provides long-term support to maintain recovery and increased independence, with the aim of discharge from community psychiatric services to primary care services.
