York Housing Association

Mental Health Support Scheme

We have a range of supported housing options for customers with long term mental health issues.  A Housing Support Worker provides regular support and draws up a support plan with the customer.  We base this on individual need and review it regularly.  Our aim is to increase independent living skills such as working with the customers to maintain their tenancies, budgeting, claiming benefits, emotional support, accessing other agencies, and  involvement in the community.
