The mental health journey doesn't move in a straight line. That’s why at Socium, we’re always ready to adapt, and work to the needs of our clients.

At Socium, you won’t find promises of magical ‘cures’. We’re not searching for that ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. Together, we’ll focus on achievable short-term goals – the things that will enable you to live and enjoy daily life.

When it comes to mental health difficulties, the journey’s never easy. But whether you’re going through this, or you’re supporting someone who is, now, you’re where you need to be.

Your partner, every step of the way

If you’re exhausted from being pointed in the wrong direction over and over again, take a breath. With Socium, you’re on the right path.

The Socium family is a seamless blend of knowledge and experience. A team of mental health nurses, psychiatrists and other specialists who are committed to helping you experience a better day-to-day.

Changing attitudes to mental health

We know that mental health difficulties don’t discriminate.

When you’re dealing with a mental health challenge, stigma has no place on your journey to a more positive future. At Socium, we want to put you on a better path to mental health.

All of our work is very much about partnership. A collaboration with our clients, their families and other professionals. Our live-in care services take place within our client’s homes, ensuring that inclusivity is something that our clients can rely on.

At Socium, we’re turning the traditional approach to mental health on its head.

Hi, I’m Jonathan, welcome to Socium

Over the last 28 years, I’ve worked as a Chartered Physiotherapist within both the NHS and private sector, as well as a healthcare manager of various Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered services. The question you’re probably asking is; what makes me the right person to set up and run a live-in care mental health service. I’m happy to tell you.

I’ve always wanted to help people, for as long as I can remember. My Aunt was a Senior Nurse in the NHS, and a pioneer of Care in the Community in the 1990’s. As Chief Executive of Bexley Mencap, she championed the movement of people with disabilities from hospitals and institutions into the community. Her drive and dedication to make a change has absolutely inspired my choice of vocation.

Throughout my career, I’ve delivered treatment in many different settings. For me, it soon became very clear that doing so within a client’s own home made a really positive difference, not only to them but also to their family.

I’ve seen some of my own family and friends struggle, and know only too well the frustration of trying to get the right support. It confirmed what I already knew; that a change was needed. For me, whatever the therapy, the principles of delivery are the same.

And here’s why:

It’s not about finding a ‘miracle cure’

Rising to the challenges that mental health difficulties present needs to be approached with a client’s entire journey in mind. It’s about realistic goals, achievable outcomes and a better day-to-day.

Mental health doesn’t discriminate

Anyone can experience mental health challenges. Whatever the situation, we want to ensure that clients are listened to and supported in a way that’s right for them. For us, that’s often achieved by delivering support within a clients own home.

Accountability is non-negotiable

At Socium, our clients and their families are at the centre of everything that we do. It’s about empowering clients to make progress and supporting them as well as their families every step of the way. We’re proactive, confident decision-makers. That’s what keeps us accountable.

So that’s me, and that’s Socium. We look forward to helping you find your better day-to-day.
