Our Kelmscott service is all about long term recovery-based support. You will have the opportunity to build resilience, skills, and independence for yourself within your family and amongst the community.
We do ask that you show your commitment to improving your mental health, by engaging in the local community, participating in educational activities, and working with our Recovery team.
In return, you’ll have access to around the clock support, develop important skills, and give yourself the chance to live your best life.
