Skegoneill

Skegoneill house is a supported housing service which provides low support accommodation and support for five adults who are experiencing mental health issues.

 Tenants who live here are required to be more independent in terms of managing living skills such as cooking, cleaning and managing medication. The tenants in this service are supported by staff in our other service, offering a ‘floating’ type service, ‘The Haven’.

The service offers a person-centered approach to mental health and wellbeing, positively focusing on helping tenants to achieve life goals to help them improve and manage their mental health and wellbeing.

"Before I came to MindWise I wasn't coping at all. Now, I'm no longer isolated."
