"Employment Specialist"

About: North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

My Employment Specialist has been a great great support too me. They have been very understanding of my situation and have been helpful and emotionally supportive as well. I think this service has given me encouragement to get back to work especially having mental health problems. I did not know about this service until I was referred for another type of therapy. I do think this service should be advertised within the Mental Health Service a lot more.
