The Wellbeing Service
Reach (previously the Wellbeing Service) provides clients with one to one support for up to 6 months; identifying personal goals and working towards achieving them. We also offer support to access groups and other services based on their locality and interests.
Reach is not a clinical service but is delivered by experienced colleagues who specialise in mental health. Our team has various specialisms, including:
- working with dual diagnosis of drugs and alcohol and severe mental illness
- working to reach all communities
- in some cases, lived experience of mental health difficulties and recovery and are Peer Support Workers
- In addition, our team includes people who work to coproduce and engage with the people we are supporting in client involvement work
Who is this service for?
This is for clients who, at the time of referral, have care-coordinators, a CPN or social worker who can make the referral. The service is for anyone who is:
- diagnosed with a serious mental illness (SMI)
- a working age adult
- hoping to be involved in community activities
Currently on a waiting list or currently accessing secondary mental health services including Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) and Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP)
Going through a transitional period, for example being discharged from inpatients or moving from supported accommodation to independent living.
How do I refer into this service?
Referrals can be made by any lead professional from the CMHT or assessment teams.
The care-coordinator should keep their client on their caseload after referring to the Reach team for around 4 weeks before they discharge them, this is so that the Reach team has someone to contact.
We offer support to access community services and groups, assist with travel training on public transport, support accessing education settings, voluntary roles and employment opportunities.
