"Eleven out of 10 for employment services"

About: Adult Mental Health Services - Community (County) / IPS Future's Positive

(as a carer),

Hi Everyone,

Up until recently my life was turned upside down because my wife had a mental illness. I did try to remain calm and sensible but was very difficult at first not knowing what was wrong with my wife, at this initial stage it took a few weeks to find out what was happening.

Now you have to turn the clocks forwards to the stage we are at now, we are looking forwards to the future and as near back to normal as possible, so we used Nottinghamshire's return to work Employment Services this initial meeting was enabled by the Newark Mental Health Unit which my wife is receiving treatment from. This help was a series of meeting to assess what help my wife needed to enter the jobs market again.

We were contacted by a young lady called Raveena and she provided the help we needed going forwards. She was a very friendly and articulate Mid-Notts IPS Employment Specialist, and she had a lot of patience and knowledge in the back to work programs we needed to get back to work. she helped in applying for jobs and with my wifes C.V. that was rewritten and made more appealing to prospective employers. I must admit the service we got was second to none and had the required effect.

From me this service gets a 10 out of ten but my wife says from her the service would get an eleven. Thanks for reading this happy ending story, and everyone be safe. Regards

Hello stegm

Thank you for sharing the journey you and your wife have been on. I'm so pleased that your wife has had a good service from Raveena and this has had a good outcome - I will make sure that Raveena sees this feedback.

I do hope that sharing your story encourages others to ask to be referred to our Employment Service so that they may benefit from help to find paid employment.

I wish you and your wife all the best for the future

Kind regards, Tracey
