Mental Health Support

As part of Falkirk Councils Social Work Department we work with adults living with severe and enduring mental illness.  We offer group activities that aim to increase self-esteem and self-confidence while giving individuals an opportunity to learn new skills or build on existing ones. 

Peer to peer support is also a major part of our service as we can provide a sense of belonging to a community of people with similar experiences.  We also work with our service users individually, offering a keyworker system so we can support people to meet their future goals and aspirations.


Mission Statement

Caledonia Service support service users in a person centred way striving to enable each individual to have an active and participative role in their local community. Our service recognises the abilities and talents of service users through a community of mutual support and will promote a positive view of mental health in the community, raising awareness to the general public to eliminate the stigma against those with a mental health illness.

Our goal is to support service users to maintain their health in the community, stabilise lifestyles, enable and enrich quality of life, social inclusion and a vision for the future. Success depends on the efforts of everyone engaged in the service, which will have a positive impact on our service users for a brighter future.

Our service subscribes to the values and practices of the IJB strategic plan, SSSC Codes of Practice, the Mental Health Strategy for Scotland and the National Care Standards. Dignity, privacy, choice, safety, realising potential and equality and diversity sit at the centre of the service we provide. The National Care Standards state “The main goal of support services is to allow you to plan and achieve your preferred lifestyle. To achieve this the service will provide the guidance, direction and assistance you need to help you work towards your personal goals in all aspects of your life.” Every service user who receives our support will be able to develop an individual lifestyle plan and we will work with them to achieve their goals, ambitions and aspirations through a person centred approach. We will commit to work in partnership with all other professionals, family and agencies in support of service users individual plans, through a mixture of therapies, conservation and community work and developing individual skills of service user choice.

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.
