Sheffield Mental Health Day!

We will be celebrating Sheffield Mental Health day by taking part in the Sheffield Wellbeing Festival. We will be joining colleagues from across the health and wellbeing sector to promote our services, raise awareness of mental illness and promote ways of improving mental health and wellbeing. There will be plenty to see and do on the day and we hope that you will pop along to our stall and help us with our Wellbeing Bunting.

Connect 3 is a bespoke service which is designed according to the client's needs. There are three core elements that individuals can access and move between as necessary.

 

The three key services are:

  • Short-term accommodation with specialist support
  • A ‘transitional landlord service’ where we’ll work with you to manage your own tenancy
  • Floating support for you in your own home

Staff will work with people on a one to one or group basis to help them engage in activity that will improve their health and fitness,  help them to develop the practical skills they need to manage their financial responsibilities and tenancy and also help them develop social skills and access new networks and interests.

 

For further information and details of how individuals can be referred into the service, click on the image alongside.

 

 Sheffield Mind is a leading provider of mental health and wellbeing services in Sheffield.
