Mental Health Housing Specialist Intervention
Our aim is to take a holistic approach towards improving the physical and mental health of everyone. We do this through the involvement of various professionals who are experts in their field and are committed to making a change.
We recognise that having a mental illness can increase your chance of developing other illnesses such as cardiovascular, respiratory and endocrine problems, for instance diabetes. This is why our support pharmacist is committed to work alongside other health professionals to conduct physical health checks and improve health and wellbeing.
