Mental Health Support

Enabling individuals with unique challenges to move into their own homes.

Facing every challenge together

At Aspirations we work to promote independence and purpose for the people we support who face various mental health related challenges.

Aspirations have extensive understanding of the Mental Health Act and help the people we support to navigate this as it can be a daunting and complicated process. We also have access to diagnosis-specific specialist training.

At Aspirations Care we are committed to:

  • Supporting people to lead active and positive lifestyles, successfully managing and stabilising their mental health, behaviours and associated support needs
  • Promoting positive risk taking to enable and empower individuals to become more independent and less reliant on professional support
  • Identifying and minimising early warning signs, risks of relapse and potential subsequent re-admission to hospital

Diagnoses include Schizophrenia, Bi-polar Disorder, Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), Personality Disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression or a combination of these diagnoses along with many others.
