In 2001/12 we worked with 972 people with significant mental health problems. We supported 65 people to get paid work.
In addition, we’ve supported 50 people to start volunteering or a work placement. Overall 12.7% of people using our services have been supported into paid work or volunteering.
Work is not the only determinant of recovery and we support people in a wide range of ways to achieve personal outcomes. This year we enabled people to achieve 4,822 personal recovery goals in a range of areas. These include starting a new activity, gaining a practical work skill and improving their quality of life. We also supported 681 people to write and use personal recovery plans.
Alongside our work with our members (people with significant mental health problems), we also work to combat stigma and discrimination in the community. We have now trained 819 members of the public to be Mental Health First Aiders and support people in mental health crisis.
