One in four people will experience a mental health problem every year. While reporting of mental health problems has increased in recent years many people are still not getting the treatment they need.
Leaving mental health needs undiagnosed and unsupported can have severe consequences for people, their families, and emergency services. Too many people with mental health issues will only present at crisis point, whether this is in accident and emergency (A&E), police custody, or prison.
We run several services specifically for people with mental health needs and support people with dual diagnosis of mental health and substance misuse.
We provide a range of services supporting people with mental health needs. We understand that everyone is different, so we take a personalised approach.
Many people across our supported housing services face mental health problems and we tailor our support to each individual. We also run dedicated housing services for people with mental health problems such as our Integrated Housing Support Service in Carmarthenshire and our Lincolnshire Housing Related Support Partnership.

Our Stockport Prevention Alliance works in partnership with agencies across Stockport we take a preventative approach, working with people to improve their wellbeing.

I was 17 when I came to Nacro, I had severe OCD and mental health issues. Living alone for the first time was incredibly daunting and stressful. Nacro helped me with support for my OCD and got me a studio flat as I found showering and eating in a living situation with others very difficult. Now I’m living independently without the need for support and I’m training as a mental health nurse.David came to Nacro NEST service through a mental health referral
