Mental Health

You are not alone, almost 75% of homeless adults suffer with different kinds of mental health needs – at Amicus we understand the impact of mental health and aim to support you through this time.

Support includes;

  • Signposting and support engagement with signpost services including; Community Mental Health Team, Drug and Alcohol Services, Victim and Abuse Survivor Support Services , DWP as well as Combat Stress or PTSD Resolution etc.
  • One-to-one Counselling sessions tailored to the individual and will aim to meet the goals set at the beginning of the sessions.
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy based on individual needs. This is a specific therapy for a specific issue. By the end of the sessions the individual should be able to cope with the issue they came into the therapy with in a practical and long lasting way.
  • Group workshops targeting issues such as; living within the law, developing confidence and self-esteem, coping with anxiety, managing addiction etc. – these workshops can benefit all even if they do not identify as having a mental health problem.

The service will remain flexible to ensure beneficiaries are supported in a way and location that will make the feel most comfortable.

To be eligible you will need to be resident with Amicus Trust or be a homeless adult resident in Bedford. Find out more Email: info@amicustrust.org or Phone: 01234 358478
