The South West Community Mental Health Project provides a social support service, through group work, based in local community settings, to individuals who are experiencing mental health difficulties. We have an open referral system and accept referrals from any source, including self-referrals, on anyone over 16 years of age, who may or may not have a diagnosed mental illness and who may or may not be in receipt of Psychiatric Services.
A primary focus of our work is to support individuals to utilise their skills and encourage them to access local mainstream opportunities within their own community. We liaise with a wide range of local agencies and organisations to facilitate this process. The Project places a high emphasis on service user involvement in the planning and provision of services, through the constituted Summertown Participants’ Group within the Project and on a wider level through platForum, a local multi-agency Mental Health Forum covering the SWCHCP area, which aims to provide a voice for service users, offering information and networking to work towards reducing stigma, promoting recovery and social inclusion.
