"Appreciation for the multi-disciplinary team in Highbury"

(as a relative),

I have a son that has been within the services for the last 15 years, mainly on the assessment and treatment unit within the learning disability directorate. He has very complex needs because he also suffers with an affective disorder - he is a pussy cat one minute and very difficult to handle the next! I'd like to thank all the members of the multi-disciplinary team that have been and are still involved in his care, the staff of that unit and the staff at Horizon day centre. They have all worked so well together towards helping him move into the community which should happen at the end of January. The process of his move to the community has been handled with a person-centered approach and I have been very involved in the interveiwing of his future staff for when he moves. The service has always been so willing to listen to me and I have been able to be involved with and influence the process. The support I've received this year under particularly difficult circumstances has been fantastic. Everyone involved has been like our extended family and I am sincerely grateful to them all.
