Mental Health

Four Pillars is committed to looking after and supporting an individual’s mental health. In this we will address the persons immediate and long-term needs. This will often involve carrying out an assessment and referring the individual to other organisations for counselling. Some volunteers at Four Pillars are trained to support a person in immediate crisis, including mental health first aid and ASIST interventions and will work with that person to make them safe before referring to other agencies. Four Pillars has built up a lasting relationship with other organisations and are able to make quick access referrals where applicable.

Four Pillars recognises the link between mental and sexual health and will not work with anyone on just one topic. Four Pillars understand that an individual needs to be in a mentally healthy place before they can truly start to look after their sexual health and address their sexual behaviours, in order to reduce the risk of HIV & STIs, whilst maintain the sex life they desire.
