Preston Park Mental Health Recovery Service
The Preston Park drop-in provides personalised support to people with mental health needs. Since 2010, HISC worked originally with the NHS and since 2013, Southdown Housing Association to offer a homeopathy clinic on site.
Homeopathy is used to treat all forms of mental illness, safely, gently and effectively. A well-matched homeopathic remedy stimulates emotional healing, helping to transform lives.
Our clinic was in heavy demand from the start and at some points a waiting list has had to be operated. Evidence shows that our services achieve results for our clients here. An estimated 10% of those treated experienced such sufficient improvements that they were able to contemplate a return to work.
We currently have a student homeopath observing the clinic as part of their training.
RISE - Freedom from Domestic Abuse
Since 2012, HISC has worked in partnership with RISE to provide a homeopathy service to women and children affected by domestic abuse. Our weekly clinic at the charity's centre has become an established part of the services offered to their clients.
Complementary therapies can help people affected by the trauma of domestic abuse by reducing stress and providing a safe place to talk and be listened to. Homeopathy sessions are offered at very low cost, helping to empower women emotionally and psychologically to move on with their lives.
The homeopathy service was introduced at the request of RISE clients and has consistently seen very high demand with clinics usually running to capacity.
Here's what some of our clients have said:
'Excellent service, highly recommend, more women and families at RISE could benefit.'
'I am very grateful that you offer this service...it makes all the difference.'

Safe in Sussex
In 2017, HISC was invited to work with Safe in Sussex at their refuges for individuals and families affected by domestic abuse. In 2018, HISC began piloting a homeopathy service in their West Sussex refuges; this includes Amber House in Littlehampton; a new style of refuge, based on a Dutch model, sited in the community rather than at a hidden location. It aims at early intervention, respite and support before the abuse has escalated.
