What I Do
My aim is to support those recovering from complex mental ill-health; support those with dementia and complex needs by helping them to access services that can benefit their lives socially, occupationally and educationally.
I work with a varied range of individuals ranging from eighteen years of age and upwards. These individuals may have a wide range of mental health-related needs, such as: autism, dementia, eating disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and psychotic disorders.
How I Support Patients
My role as a peer support worker involves working with individuals during one to one meetings initially, in order to support individuals to find connections in the community, that would benefit their mental health.
After the service user and myself have found services, I support them to access the support that they need until they are confident to do so alone.
