Welcome

We are The Community of St Anthony & St Elias, an organisation in Devon working with people with mental health conditions

A community of people, living and sharing their lives together.

What unites everyone here is the desire to move on and get on with their life - living together with people and all the interaction and support that goes with that, relating to each other as equals, exercising choices and coping with responsibilities that come with it.

Friends & Equals

We aim to encourage people towards independence and individual choice. The Community encourages the development of social as well as working relationships between residents and staff, creating a situation of equal persons living together.

We encourage everybody to support each other. Observing others overcoming their own challenges offers opportunity for discussion, reflection and growth, and this can diminish isolation and lonliness.
