How ordinary homes can fight mental ill health

A new film - 'My choice, our life' explores the extraordinary impact that Shared Lives can have for people with mental ill health. 

It’s a brief, uplifting and intimate view into the lives of two Shared Lives families, and demonstrates the nurturing, restorative effect that living in an ordinary family home can have on a person’s mental health.

The theme of this year’s mental health awareness week is stress. Stress affects everybody and can be particularly hard to cope with for people who are isolated and face barriers to living independently.

Shared Lives’ emphasis on relationships, compassion and communication provides people with the emotional and psychological support that everybody deserves, but not everybody gets.
