Since 2012, Care in Mind have been offering specialist mental health packages to young people aged 16-30 in residential care settings. Our innovative and evidence-based model of care aims to support young people presenting with high levels of complexity and risk in the least restrictive setting. Many of the young people we work with transition to us from inpatient settings and may have experienced numerous previous admissions and/or placement breakdowns.

Our unique model provides 24/7 on-call and crisis intervention support, which helps us support our young people in maintaining their community placement and avoiding readmission.
