DERBY MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
We work with all of our service users from where they are at the point when they are admitted to the unit, not with any preconceived expectations. They have full involvement in the development of their individual recovery plans, which invariably includes specific detail related to physical health concerns, as this is a major issue for many who come to reside with us at Vinegar House.
This element needs to be addressed at a level that both encourages the service users understanding and the need to engage in the help offered to them in order to keep well in the future. Nutrition and healthy eating forms a major focus of our unit and we try and offer positive lifestyle choices to service users that can be taken forward when they eventually move on.
