Mental health

Approximately 1.4 million people in England have learning difficulties, with 40% likely to have a significant mental illness.

Mental health is still something of a taboo subject, yet at any one time, one in six people in the UK has a common mental health problem such as an anxiety disorder or depression, whilst one in 100 has a severe mental illness, such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.

We focus our attention and support on the small steps that lead to a fulfilling and independent future for people with complex mental health illness. We have a wealth of expertise and experience in delivering the right level of individual support and therapy that is fundamental in achieving rewarding outcomes.

Our approach is focused on the needs of the individual and maximising their independence as soon as possible. It is our goal that each person we support can live in the least restrictive and lowest cost environment whilst continuing to be able to access on-going support and the therapeutic engagement of a full multidisciplinary team.

Therapeutic treatment, care and support for people with complex and enduring mental health illness:

  • Open rehabilitation independent hospital
  • Community group homes
  • Supported living

Mental health – Case study

Kelly’s journey to independence

Names have been changed to protect identities.

Kelly chose to live on her own with support from CareTech. This decision has helped her to be more independent. Now she manages her finances, including budgeting and paying for things like her utility bills.

The 39 year old has quickly settled into her flat bringing along her pet birds who she adores and cares for a lot. She is extremely happy living in her flat and with personalised support has improved skills as a result.

Kelly takes pride in maintaining her home and can now focus on getting involved with the community. She is a regular at the local mental health day centre and attends weekly.

Three months on, good things have happened – her support hours have been reduced as she is more independent.

Previously, she was living in a residential setting for over 12 years at a number of different homes. She had been experiencing mental health problems since the age of 16, so it was not easy for her at first to move, but with the right support and expert advice, she is happier in her new flat.

Although Kelly still needs some support on occasions, she has adapted well into her new environment. She has a promising and bright future to look forward to.
