Here for You
GRS promote a modern, progressive approach to mental health treatment. Our services are clinically led, and we have extensive experience of delivering support to individuals.
Designing specialist support to suit a person's unique requirements is key to our service, with a focus on personal development plans and working within the National Service Framework for Mental Health.
Our aim is to empower individuals by providing a pathway which focuses on recovery, encouraging people to gain control of their lives, enjoy sustainable independence and have belief in their potential.
The Genesis Pathway
Our Commitment to You
Many service users in adult social care settings will have mental health needs in some form. All our care services address the mental health needs of service users, just as we address their physical health needs. Any service user can suffer from mental ill health and emotional distress.
Most people with mental ill health receive treatment and support through the health services as they would for any physical complaint, and an important element of care is to avoid stigma.
- GRS keep service users' emotional, intellectual and psychological health, constantly under consideration as part of a total approach to their care and support.
- GRS make sure service users' mental health is made subject to regular monitoring and review (with the full involvement of those individuals).
- GRS refer to and work in an interdisciplinary way with GP's, psychiatrists, psychogeriatricians and other mental health specialists, where this is required.
- GRS include mental healthcare in staff development and training programmes from induction training onwards.
