Hafal Merthyr Tydfil helps people with serious mental illness and their families to work towards recovery. All our services are underpinned by Hafal’s Recovery Programme which empowers clients and families to take control of their lives and achieve recovery.
Hafal’s Recovery Programme is a modern approach to dealing with mental illness.
As an organisation managed by its members – people with experience of serious mental illness and their families – Hafal has drawn on many years’ experience in dealing with serious mental illness to make the Recovery Programme as effective as possible.
What’s the Programme about?
Hafal’s Recovery Programme isn’t just about medication or other therapies which deal directly with symptoms. These can be very important, but mental health is built on much broader foundations.
For any one individual the biggest step to recovery may be finding a place to live, getting a job, establishing a good relationship with their family… usually there are a set of different things which are important to an individual’s recovery.
This is where Hafal’s Recovery Programme comes in. When individuals experience serious mental illness, the Recovery Programme offers them a more methodical way of improving all aspects of their lives.
How does the Recovery Programme work?
The Recovery Programme encourages you to take a “Whole Person” approach, looking at the following areas of your life in order to move forward:
In the process, the Programme covers all aspects of Hafal’s local service including:
- Planning and action
- Managing services
- Wider empowerment
