Mental health support services

Enable was set up in 2008 by Debbie Boyes. Debbie is a Mental Health Nurse with more than 25 years’ experience in working with people with a range of mental health problems. In her NHS career, Debbie worked as a Specialist Nurse in Mental Health and developed and managed various teams including Assertive Outreach, Early Intervention in Psychosis and Home Treatment. 

Sue Marshall also has many years’ experience working with people with serious mental health needs and brings her carer experience to her role – Head of Support Services.

Donna Trott is our Staff Support Manager. Donna is a Registered Mental Health Nurse with many years of experience in working with people with a wide range of mental health needs, particularly older people. Donna works part time with us, running her own mental health Micro-Enterprise alongside her role in Enable.

Debbie, Sue and Donna are passionate about the rights of people with mental health needs to access high quality support and care; the service was set up to achieve this.

Our knowledge, experience and commitment enable us to provide specialised support to people with the most complex mental health needs within the Recovery model. We train and support our staff to build effective relationships with our clients, aimed at engaging, supporting and enabling them.

Complex Needs

Complex needs service

Using our communication skills and our commitment to individualised support, we work in small teams with people with other types of complex need – such as Asperger’s Syndrome, Learning Disability and Acquired Brain Injury.

We use a Strengths model – working with our clients to enable them to enjoy maximum choice and control and making sure we listen to their needs and wishes – in the various ways that they communicate these to us.
