I live in the Lincs region by my lonesome.

Life experiences

Mental Health

I've been with several different mental health services through childhood / adulthood, CAMHS, which is the child services, a child unit, STEP, which is an adult service, Crisis Team, which is a short term help service, and now the Recovery Team, which is a service for those with longer term mental health complaints.

I've been in and out, and around the system, and on the way I met many interesting patients and learned about the ins and outs of mental health.

When I was 15, I was sectioned / admitted to a child in-patient unit, due to my health getting worse and worse. I was there for 7 months.

Like I said, I feel I know the ins / outs of mental health conditions and causes / treatment, so don't be shy to contact me regarding this issue.

General Issues

Wether it's education, stress, depression, tough times, I'll be here to give my views or share experiences.

Ask away if you need the advice, I'm all ears.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Well, to put it simply - mental health is my career! I try get involved as much as I can - a reflection from my own bad experiences and mental health issues / illness and being a part of the system has made me realise that my experiences of being a service user can be that of an asset rather than just one bad memory - it can be beneficial and contribute to my work professionally in the mental health sector. I'm currently studying Mental Health Nursing and work for Samaritans in my spare time. I have been a Horsesmouth mentor for quite a while now - unfortunately due to a heavy work schedule you'll have to forgive me if I don't respond as quickly as you'd like.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
