Together

Overview

Head office of national organisation providing community based services including residential care, supported accommodation and community support, day services, services for people involved in the criminal justice system, training and information.
Together also aims to work for positive change in mental health legislation and practice.

Too many people pass through the criminal justice system without their mental health needs being recognised.  With more than 70 per cent of the prison population having some kind of mental health problem, it is crucial that specialist services exist to ensure that people get the care and support they need to break the cycle of offending.  Together’s Criminal Justice Services have successfully broken this cycle for thousands of offenders.  The people that benefit from their services have backgrounds and circumstances that are highly complex and characterised by multiple disadvantages, such as mental distress, substance misuse, poverty and debt, homelessness, learning disability, domestic violence and abuse or speech and language problems.

Supporting people on probation:  Together’s Forensic Mental Health Practitioner (FMHP) service works within the National Probation Service (NPS) to provide assessment and therapeutic intervention where people have a primary mental health need and may also be experiencing a number of other vulnerabilities, including personality disorder, learning disability or substance or alcohol abuse.  Its practitioners also support service users with risk concerns including self-harm and suicide.
