    Helena’s House in Huyton, Merseyside is an enhanced 24/7 supported living service for people living with a mental health diagnosis, mild learning disability or autism.

    Helena’s House is located in the heart of the community in Huyton. A Victorian property which has been sympathetically developed to retain its character, but to also offer our residents a modern, spacious environment to live in. Across 2 floors there is a mixture of accommodation types with both shared facilities and ensuite rooms available.

    As with all of our residential mental health support services, our residents benefit from ‘The Northern Healthcare model of enhanced supported living’, with 24/7 support onsite and clinical input from a Registered Mental Health Nurse and Occupational Therapist.

    The team at Helena’s House provide 24/7 support for people with a variety of mental health conditions. Our residents come to us from a number of different pathways; they may need greater ‘step down’ support following a period in an acute hospital or forensic service. Our experienced multi-disciplinary team help our residents to achieve their next steps, from simple tasks such as dieting and budgeting, to longer term goals such as gaining employment.
