I have recently attended the carers forum at Wathwood which I found it very helpful and supportive.
This was a wonderful day we had the opportunity to speak to other carers and we were able to talk about the anxieties that we have and find that others have the same worries and anxieties that we have as a family.
I found the staff very warm and accommodating they were very helpful and this time they had put ‘market stalls on’. This allowed us to walk around and look at the various stalls focusing on Recovery. This helped us understand what my son does with nurses, Occupational therapists, Social workers, CBT therapist Education and they had an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans gender) group that patients were promoting.
They also produced another excellent lunch allow us to sit down with my son and have a meal with the family in a busy sociable setting it was just like a party or celebration. A very enjoyable day, I am sure the other several other families felt the same.
