Your generous donations help us to reach more people affected by poor mental health with advice, support and information.

We believe that, with the right personalised support, anyone with a mental health need can live the life they want to live. It is our vision that everyone gets the personalised services and support they need.

To make this vision a reality, our mission is to help people achieve good physical and mental wellbeing and live life to the full.

We do this by providing mental health support services, ranging from ‘talking therapies’ for men, women, adults, families, children and young people to coaching Workplace wellbeing and Psychoeducational support and training, and all based on the principle of supporting every person, as an individual, towards their own goals and aspirations.

At RWYS we aspire to deliver the highest quality of care and support to individuals, couples children, young people and families. We do this by working alongside you to help you understand who you are, deciphering why you have made the decisions you have in life, learning how to make choices that suit you better and moving forward in life in ways that feel good.

Our aim is to make a real and lasting difference to the people we support by achieving positive outcomes and enabling as normal and fulfilling a life as possible.

Putting people first

Our business is about people, people who need hope and deserve a better future. It’s about finding the spark that enables each of the people we support to grow in self-worth and where possible, independence.

Being supportive

Being a non-judgemental  confidential and professional service  to the people we support to offer clinical interventions based on the latest scientific research and guidelines.

Acting with integrity

Taking responsibility, being honest in what we do and what we say, keeping it personal and real.

Striving for excellence

Questioning everything in a positive and constructive way and always striving to improve. By doing so, we can make things better for the individuals we support.

Being positive

Seeing potential, seeing what could be and not limitations. Being creative and trying out new things to find the best solutions that make it happen.
