Milmount

The Millmount service is offered in the Banbridge area to deliver housing support in the local area to individuals experiencing mental ill health.

We are a recovery based service and welcome referrals through our local Support and Recovery teams.  Millmount offers support between the hours of 9am – 5pm Monday – Friday each week.

The aim of the service is to continue to promote independence and inclusion in the local community and support its tenants to live fulfilling and meaningful lives, while reducing stigma associated with mental ill health.


"Just knowing that I can rely on staff for support gives me great peace of mind."

What we offer our tenants

We offer structured support to all tenants. Tenants are expected to receive support via 1:1 or group activity, key-work sessions, person centred support plans and reviews.

Tenants enjoy participating in daily activities that are delivered alongside MindWise Day Opportunities service in the Banbridge area and attend a range of community based activities.

Staff provide support in our tenants’ flats with daily living tasks, budgeting, prompting tenants to attend appointments, or to take medication at particular times.  Staff also encourage tenants to have good levels of independence in their lives, and to enjoy activities in their local community.
