Who uses this service?
We help people who are no longer able to be cared for at home as a result of their mental illness.
We help people with two main types of mental illness:
Organic mental illness – this type of illness is usually caused by disease affecting the brain. Dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease is an example of organic illnesses.
Functional mental illness - this type of illness has a predominantly psychological cause. It may include conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, mood disorders or anxiety.
