Achieve Together supports people with a wide range of mental health needs including personality disorder, bi-polar disorder, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, dementia and schizophrenia. Many who choose Achieve Together to support them have endured a number of hospital admissions and may exhibit physically and/or verbally aggressive and/or self-injurious behaviour.
We enable people with mental health needs to fulfil their potential on a long-term basis. Person centred planning enables us to undertake detailed care and relapse prevention planning whilst measuring progress by working towards a set of realistic outcomes. These outcomes are identified by the people we support, which is a fundamental part of the recovery process.
Once Achieve Together has been chosen to provide mental health support, individuals are involved in many aspects of planning their services which include training and recruiting staff. Our staff use pro-active risk management to support initiatives for people we support to become active members of their communities, including employment and education. In our experience, this not only helps to increase social and emotional wellbeing but also decreases the stigma that can be attached to people with mental health needs.
