Unique support with mental health

The primary function of Balmain is to offer support to those who are suffering from mental health issues or illnesses. Our mental health services are unique to the needs of the locality; in one area, for example, we support people with longer-term severe and enduring mental health needs; in others, we work with people with organic mental health problems of the ages of 18 and up who have a high level of complex needs that have often challenged services. Our aim is, wherever possible, to enable our residents to re-equip themselves to return to life within the community. However, we do appreciate that in certain circumstances, there are residents who require a long-term stay in a home that offers the best of welfare, safety, and security in a stable environment and is being cared for by staff that they have come to know and trust.

For anyone needing support or care for mental health concerns, we offer a wide range of personalised services. Service users can be admitted either on an informal basis or on a more formal basis when, unfortunately, matters have deteriorated to the point where measures under the Mental Health Act are required post-hospital admission. Under all circumstances, each potential resident is formally and professionally assessed by a trained and skilled member of our team.

Person-centred support plans

We utilise person-centered support plans that are corroborated by multi-disciplinary teams of highly qualified professionals, and our service users are encouraged to choose holistic routes that will promote positive mental health and an all-round feeling of well-being.

Wherever possible, social and community integration are promoted. The team works pro-actively, with local groups supporting access to local leisure and recreation facilities, local or regional events, and further education courses.

Additional facilities

Rehabilitation: catering for those who are suffering from mental health issues as a result of drug and alcohol-related problems.

Therapy Room: therapy room that is used by service users to promote basic living skills with the goal of repatriation into the community

Accessible Transport: 7-seat people carrier, which facilitates not only transport to and from hospital and doctor appointments but also allows for numerous trips and outings for the residents.
