Early Intervention Service

Re-Instate / Early Intervention Service

The Early Intervention Service supports residents of the London borough of Bexley experiencing mental ill-health and focuses on creative interventions at the earliest stage. Support is provided for those at work or searching for paid employment. We can also help you access education, training, and volunteering opportunities. This project is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Intervention in the initial stages of a person’s mental ill-health can have significant and life-changing consequences. Getting help as soon as you need it, is critical to help prevent and reduce the progress of mental illness as well as minimising the negative impact it can have on your day-to-day life. 

“My interaction, help and advice, I have received from Re-Instate was outstanding. They have helped me to build up my confidence and try new paths of progression!”

We can offer you:

  • Wellness action plans.
  • Tailored support to fill vacancies.
  • Advice on becoming a disability-confident employer.
  • Mental Health Awareness training for managers and employees.
  • Help and support to ensure mental health at work policies and procedures are up to date to support employees.

 “You have given me a really good start and helped me believe that I can do things that I really didn’t think that I could do. I am more confident and think why couldn’t I do something better, and you helped me to do it. I can’t thank you all enough. I’ve surprised myself”
