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.

Helena’s House is a warm and welcoming environment, where residents can build their confidence and reach their goals in a safe and supportive service. We encourage our residents to live independently, but we are always on hand to help and provide reassurance 24/7.
Located close to the centre of Huyton, there is easy access to shops, libraries, local amenities and public transport. Liverpool city centre can easily be reached via Roby train station, which is just a 10-minute walk away.
We encourage our residents to be actively involved in our monthly residents’ meeting, where our team and our residents come together to share feedback and new ideas.
I am supported by a multi-disciplinary team which includes a Registered Mental Health Nurse, an Occupational Therapist and Support Workers. All residents are supported 24-hours by our dedicated team. Our residents also benefit from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sessions.
