Step towards mental health

A NEW service has been launched for people with mental health difficulties.

Positive Steps will provide visiting support from the city council's social care staff to enable people in the south west of the city to stay in their own homes and get to know people in their local community.

Up to 11 people will receive emotional and practical support from the scheme, which runs 365 days a year. It will also help people develop domestic skills such as shopping and cooking, and improve their access to employment and education.
