Most mental health services provide people with quick and efficient treatments that support their recovery so that they can rebuild or get on with their lives. However, some people need a service that offers a place where they can stay for a longer spell of treatment, particularly when they have complicated or multiple needs. This type of service can include mental health rehab treatment which supports people to return to their own homes or accommodation.
There are rehab wards in hospital and community settings in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, and Bristol also has a Community Rehabilitation Service.
The Mental Health Rehab Review and Reshaping Survey has been set up to help us review what types of mental health and other support people might need to recover from severe and enduring mental health difficulties and move towards returning home or finding accommodation in neighbourhoods across the area.
We want to make sure we offer the best possible services to help support people’s lasting recovery.
We are particularly interested to hear the views of people who currently use or have previously used mental health rehabilitation services and people who feel they could have benefited from a different type of treatment. We would also like to hear from close family members, friends or carers of people using rehab services.
The survey will close on Thursday 4 April 2019.
