Bridge Housing Management
How can we support people with mental health problems who need help finding and maintaining accommodation?
Research shows living in safe, well-maintained housing has a profound effect on mental health.
Sometimes vulnerable people need a fresh start in a new area, to get away from a dealer, for instance, or because they have become a target of cuckooing, where a dealer takes over the house of a vulnerable person.
Many people with mental health problems struggle to find high-quality housing and maintain their tenancy which can make recovery from mental health problems seem impossible.
The quality of care delivered has been excellent, the economic argument is a powerful one comparing the cost of placement in secure hospitals with the scheme provided at the TILT project.
