Housing project

We support people who have been affected by mental ill health to achieve fulfilling lives. Our main aim is for people using our services to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible in their communities and to eventually be ready to move into their own homes. 

What we offer

Basildon Mind’s Supported Housing provides accommodation in the community for adults experiencing mental health difficulties, supporting them towards recovery. We offer accommodation in a shared house or a one bedroomed flat and provide the level of support required by each individual. The Housing Manager offers you person-centred planning with the aim of encouraging individuals to improve their social and living skills, independence and mental health enabling them to move on into independent living. When devising our support plans we work around the ten areas of the Recovery Star.

Managing mental health

Self-care

Living skills

Social networks

Work

Relationships

Addictive behaviours

Responsibilities

Identity and self esteem

Trust and hope
