Small steps with great outcomes
One of our Peer Support Workers is supporting a participant whose mental health had deteriorated significantly and she followed our process to ensure her participant had the support they require in such circumstances. She wrote to their GP stating the difficulties the participant was currently facing and despite not being offered secondary mental health support, our PSW persevered and referred her to CARA. The participant was so grateful as she feels able to focus on achieving her goals and that there is purpose again to her life. This story shows that with just one small intervention, signposting to the right organisation can benefit the participants wellbeing profusely!
