MENTAL HEALTH FALKIRK

Welcome to our online home, please bookmark this website as it will be updated regularly with new content of the day to day business of Caledonia.

Caledonia will strive to make each service user feel wanted as a contributor and needed as an individual to the Caledonia Programme. We will provide opportunities for our service users to discover personal abilities and talents through a community of mutual support.

Our goal is to establish a foundation which will increase individuals self-esteem and confidence, enhance their social skills and give a vision for the future. We are committed to the ongoing education of the public to raise the awareness of mental health issues and ultimately to eliminate the stigma against those with mental illness. Success depends on the efforts of everyone engaged in Caledonia, which will have a significant impact on our service users with a view to a brighter future.


ABOUT US

Caledonia is based on the psychosocial model of rehabilitation for adults with severe and/or enduring mental health problem. Caledonia is designed to be a place where a person with mental health problems is not a patient and is not defined by a disability level. Instead, Caledonia is a community intentionally organised to support individuals living with the effects of mental illness.

The service users and staff of Caledonia work in group activities to manage all the operations of the service, providing an opportunity for service users to contribute in significant and meaningful ways. Staffing levels are purposefully kept low to create an environment  where the staff will genuinely need the service users to accomplish their jobs. Thus, being part of Caledonia gives a person living with mental illness the opportunity to share in creating successes for the community. At the same time, he or she is getting the necessary help and support to achieve individual success and satisfaction.

Here at Caledonia we seek to demonstrate that people with mental illness can successfully live productive lives and work in the community regardless of the nature or severity of their mental illness. Caledonia hold the conviction that group work activites are restorative and provide a firm foundation for growth and important individual achievement. It is also a strongly held belief that normalised social and recreational opportunities are an important part of recovery.

SELF HELP

One in four people visit their GP with an emotional or psychological problem. In many cases, with tried-and-tested resources and good support, it’s possible to successfully manage your symptoms. Many people find self-help materials, such as books or computer programs; useful in managing their health therefore we have added some websites that have self-help information and other local services that hopefully will be of use when dealing with the effects of your illness.
