Perceptive , Honest , Empathetic
I live in the Lincs region by my lonesome.
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.
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.
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.
