Our Step Up Service Lavender House

At Goddess Living we believe in escalation prevention. Our step up service is for women with mental health conditions who need intensive interventions but do not need to be admitted to hospital. The service is for women who are living in the community who are experiencing an escalation in symptoms and need a short stay in a residential rehabilitation program to avoid hospitalisation.

Step up services offer a supportive, residential environment where women  living with a mental illness can stay, for a short period of time and participate in therapeutic  programs and activities that will assist them to remain part of their community, close to family and friends.

Our aim is to bring mental health treatment closer to home. Going into an inpatient facility isn’t always the best for everyone. We are proud to have created a cost effective family -like  environment  and successfully manage their relapse and return home.

Our Benefits

People Can and Do Recover From Mental Health

We believe and statistics show that people can and do recover from mental ill health. Goddess Living Provides The Right Care, Right Supported Housing, Right Alternative To Inpatient Treatment. 

Our service is designed for women to recover and stay well and live as independently as possible within our homes to ensure independence can be managed in the long term. We do this by following our person centred model of GODDESS Framework. 

                                     GODDESS stands for:


GREATER CONTINUITY OF CARE for women with ongoing mental health conditions and more coordinated care for those with the most complex needs.

OUT OF HOSPITAL COORDINATED PLANNING to  improve the discharge process to facilitate the transfer of an individual from hospital to our therapeutic environment 

DIGNITY IN MENTAL HEALTH SETTINGS Promote  person centred care,  ensure that their human rights are protected at a time when their capacity, autonomy, choice and control may be compromised.

DEVOTED TO IMPROVING MENTAL ILLNESS Exercise community support and  interventions to improve nutrition, health and wellbeing, housing and education to reduce mental health problems. 

EMPOWER WOMEN TO HAVE MORE CONTROL over their care packages, promote out of hospital care and better patient experience along with the removal of formal or informal barriers to services.

SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE cost effective step up and step down service that reduces financial pressures,  increases  independence  and maximises the benefit to the health of our patients, society and the environment.

SHIFT INPATIENT TREATMENT to intermediate care and accommodation in home from home therapeutic environments in their communities. 

The purpose of Goddess Living  is to focus on the needs of each individual. We work in partnership with Social Care agencies ensuring that the well-being of each woman is paramount. Primarily, Goddess Living offers personal care and support to women with complex mental health needs in an effort to redress the imbalance and discrimination that some may have faced by being a part of the “dependent” community, and at times added to this, racism and negative stereotyping of sexuality, which is unfortunately a reality for many women today. We deliver truly person-centred support solutions that provide independence and happiness.
