Hafal’s services in Neath Port Talbot for clients and families include:
A voice in planning – In our experience people have the best chance of achieving recovery from a serious mental illness if they take control of their recovery, adopt a holistic approach and develop a step-by-step plan. Our staff work with each of our clients individually to achieve this outcome.
Early intervention in Psychosis Service

The project works in partnership with ABMU Health Board Staff, providing young people with support through their identified Early Intervention in Psychosis Recovery Practitioner in the County Boroughs of Swansea, Bridgend and Neath Port Talbot.
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
