I was taken on by the Social Inclusion & Wellbeing Service in June 2012 after being discharged my the psychiatrist I was referred to because we didn't see eye to eye about medication & I was so unwell that I missed several appointments with her (I was an outpatient). As I was also accessing another secondary care service, the Social Inclusion Service agreed to work with me for an initial period of 3 months, which, through the efforts of my worker, Sangita, was ultimately extended to a year. I would just like to say that working with this service and the services I was referred to as a result, namely FOCUS managed by Tim, actually gave me back hope in my life. I lost my job due to ill health (anxiety & associated depression)in 2010 and I was beginning to lose all hope that I would ever make a sustained recovery and return to work. There have been some set backs along the way, mainly due to external factors, but I now feel that there is hope that my recovery is sustainable and I can return to work in the future. Thank you.
