"My journey of my health care"

About: Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust / Early intervention in psychosis service (EIP) (Limbrick)

(as the patient),

I was so scared and fragile when I first turned to services. I didn’t know I was suffering from mental health when I was. It’s taken a lot of battling to get where I am today, but without the help and continued support from psychiatrist Dan, my co-ordinators Sarah and Rebecca, my recovery worker Janice, and my cbt worker Maggie all from limberick centre I wouldn’t be where I am today.

They’ve given me time and consistency, to allow me to be myself and guided me where’s needed. I’ve learnt a lot of fresh new tools along the way and been able to have the chance to learn so much about myself in many different ways. I’ve always felt warm and welcomed by services and treasured every moment spent with each individual worker. We’ve had rocky times where I’ve taken it out on them but they’ve all been supportive through whatever it is that’s been troubling me. I’ve also got help from Kate my advocacy who’s also helped me through times where I could say my piece.
