Supported Living

Career talking to a resident in a supported living environment

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), Mental health is not just the absence of mental disorder. It is as a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to contribute to her or his community. This could range from stress related illnesses to, eating and personality disorders.
