The Alexandra Wellbeing House
The Alexandra Wellbeing House provides a safe, therapeutic environment for adults with mental health challenges who need up to two weeks support and advice from Wellbeing Support Staff. Individuals are referred to as ‘Guests’ to reflect the non-clinical, relaxing atmosphere of the service. Each Guest will be allocated their own private bedroom and there are also several communal areas and shared facilities such as, the living room, kitchen, crafts room, outdoor garden space and summer house.
The Alexandra Wellbeing House is located within the centre of Gloucester and was officially opened by the Countess of Wessex in July 2017. ‘The Alex’ is a partnership project between Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind with 2gether NHS Foundation Trust. The service is also supported by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group.
Support Guests to develop wellbeing and safety plans to help prevent further deterioration which may result in a mental health crisis and hospital admission & provide a stepping stone following discharge from hospital to help Guests to return to the community if they have their own secure accommodation.
