Community Recovery Support

Our Community Recovery Support Service (CRSS) is for people who have a mental health condition diagnosed by a medical professional and feel they are ready to take independent steps to reintegrate into the community and make changes in their lives.

Community Recover SupportWe offer this support either from our office or out and about in a Harborough venue that is convenient to you. We can also offer the CRSS over the telephone. We are not able to offer home visits as we want to promote getting out and about in the community.

The CRSS is for an individual to identify ONE goal or obstacle which we will work together to achieve or overcome.

This service is offered for a maximum of 12 consecutive weeks. We are not able to offer long term one to one support or a checking in facility.

We talk through the changes and developments you would like to make and why. We discuss how these will inform your life and how they will positively impact on your future and your wellbeing.

We will walk through the steps needed to achieve this change and the possible outcomes and together we will create a support plan to outline it all.

Liaising with local and national groups and organisations, we will ensure you get the best advice and support available to take the right steps to make the changes you need.

This service is aimed towards supporting people to help themselves in developing personal resilience, increased mental wellbeing, self-confidence, social inclusion and independence.

People can refer themselves to the service by completing a Referral Form or by asking their GP or other health or social care professional to refer them. This service is free.

The project is not a crisis service and it would be unfair to you if we tried to help at a level where you could feel overwhelmed and pressured to make change before you are ready for it. However, we can still offer you advice, information and support to move forward.

Accessing the Service

The service is free for people over the age of 18 years and who live in the Harborough District. Anyone can contact us for advice and information about mental health either via our telephone service, email or our advice sessions.
