Care in Mind is a CQC registered provider offering publicly funded specialist mental health supported residential placements to the NHS and Local Authorities across the North of England.
We work with young people and young adults aged 16-25 with significant mental health difficulties who are often leaving the hospital or secure care and who require a higher level of support on discharge than other services can provide.
Our residential placements can also sometimes provide an alternative to hospital admission, freeing scarce beds for those for whom admission is the only option. In this way, we are able to assist in the objectives of the government strategy paper ‘Future in Mind’, by providing alternatives to inpatient beds and reducing lengths of admission.
Care in Mind support significant levels of complexity and risk in the community avoiding the pitfalls of long inpatient admissions, such as escalations in risk and increased dependency. In this way, we can support young people to stay connected to the people and places that are important to them and to continue their education and other activities in a less restrictive setting.
We can also offer step-down supported living packages with reducing levels of support, to assist those leaving residential care in making their transition to fully independent living.
