MHM are contracted by South Tyneside Council to provide support for up to 16 people with mental health needs. This support, provided in eleven self contained and fully furnished flats across South Tyneside and also for people in their own homes, aims to enable people to be able to gain and maintain their own homes. Support is provided to enable service users to gain all the necessary skills, understanding and community links to be able to live confidently and securely in their own homes and be a valued part of their neighbourhood.

This is achieved through each service user being linked with a key-worker, who together with the whole of our South Tyneside team will develop an personalised support plan for the person concerned. This plan will identify key areas of need raised by the service user and other agencies who work with them. This will be used to identify opportunities for the service user to develop all that they need to live successfully in their own home.

This support can be provided for up to two years depending on the needs of the individual concerned. At then end of the support each person will be able to say that the can make it on their own and go forward for a positive future.

The support service operates from Monday to Friday in the hours between 9am and 5.00pm
