Why work in community mental health services?

We provide a range of community-based mental health services for people who need support for their mental health issues. We want our patients to be able to take much greater control over the way they are treated, and will encourage them to set your own goals, priorities and hopes for the future. We focus on recovery from illness, rather than just on treatment. This approach is called the ‘recovery’ principle and runs through all of the work that we do.

       Some of the ways we can help include:

Prescribing and managing your medication | Psychological (talking) therapies | Occupational therapy | Specialist support for people experiencing psychosis | Intensive support for people who have difficulty keeping in contact with their mental health services (assertive outreach)

Living in Hampshire

Hampshire is based in the centre of the South Coast. As well as the idyllic New Forest National Park we have some the country’s best beaches and coastline on our doorstep. If it’s culture you’re after then we have the historical cities of Portsmouth, Winchester and Salisbury within easy reach. There’s some amazing museums such as Milestones Living History Museum in Basingstoke and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard with the prestigious Mary Rose.

The county is served with some great travel links with quick and easy access to London. Southampton also has its own airport with large motorways including M3 and M27 serving the whole area.

If you like to be kept busy then we can help here too. Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester have a great range of shops, restaurants and bars with fantastic leisure facilities. You can pop on the ferry to Isle of Wight and join in with the annual music festival. There are also regular Farmers’ Markets held in villages across the county selling fresh, local produce and a range of homemade treats.

For those of you who enjoy sport we have a county cricket team and a premier league football team. If you love the water, then Hampshire is for you! We host Cowes Week sailing event, and a kite surfing festival every year. There are also many opportunities for kayaking, windsurfing and SUP.

If you currently live further afield then, get in touch to enquire about our attractive relocation packages and join us to enjoy south coast living.
