Mental Health - Social Support


What is it?

If you are suffering from mental health issues social support services can really help you to begin recovery and get your life back on track.  
  • Social Drop In Services provide a safe environment where you can find information, advice, guidance and signposting, and where appropriate, peer support (support from people who have also experienced mental health issues).  There are one to one sessions when a need is identified or if you experience a mental health crisis.
  • Inreach Service – if you have difficulty accessing other mental health support service, because of your age, gender, culture, where you live, or for reasons arising out of your mental health problem, the team may be able to help.
  • Peer Support – if you have lived experience of mental health problems and want to set up your own group outside of drop-in sessions, the Peer Support co-ordinator can help you do this.
For more information about what these services offer and how to access them see Leicestershire Life Links leaflet.
  • The Inclusion Support Service helps people with mental health issues to build bridges back into their communities.  The service works with people on a one to one basis.  An Inclusion Support Worker will help you work out what you want to do, identify the opportunities to do these things and go with you initially to introduce you to the activities of your choice
Further information is available about the Inclusion Support Service.
