About our organisation

We provide a range of high quality specialist mental health and learning disability services for the people of Devon, the wider South West region and nationally.

We are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing. Our mission is to become a centre of excellence and expertise in the field of mental health and learning disability by 2021. We strive to use the expertise and resources within our organisation, and through our partnerships, to deliver high quality services that are safe and focused on people's recovery.

Our passion and commitment to achieve this shapes our vision, mission and strategy. Our staff are pivotal in everything we do and we are committed to involving them fully in the development of the Trust and our services.

Our aim is to deliver consistently high quality, recovery-focused care and treatment and to ensure our services are driven by the voices of the people who use them.

We are an equal opportunities employer and aim to challenge discrimination and stigma and champion recovery, inclusion and wellbeing. We also strive for mental health and learning disability services to be understood and valued in the same way as physical health services.  

We have a budget of £145m a year and employ around 2,600 staff. During the course of a year we receive around 66,000 referrals and we are supporting around 20,000 people every month.
