Looking after our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health, but it’s sometimes easy to forget this.

We understand that being faced with the possibility of homelessness has a big impact on mental health and well being. Our support is holistic, meaning that we can help you to work through the issues you are facing. Our aim is to help you to build the foundations for independence in a way that addresses your individual needs, whatever these may be. If we feel that you may benefit from counselling, we can arrange sessions for you with a local counselling service.

You are not alone. Here are some resources to help you through these challenging times…
