My son is a different person following help and support from the Criminal Justice Liaison and Diversion Team and Mansfield Community Speech and Language therapist and the mental health teams.
Because of the Criminal Justice Teams intervention my son was given access to the Mansfield mental health team who were able to get to the root of his behavioural problems that led to criminality and drug abuse. They were able to refer him for speech and language therapy also which has also helped enormously and through coordination have got my son into an assisted flat where they can all keep an eye on him and continue to give him access to the therapies he needs, and has needed for a long time.
My son is calmer and less frustrated and angry, his behaviour has changed so that he speaks more to the rest of the family, bringing us all closer. Without this we would have been driven further apart, I thought it would end in tragedy. we now have a better understanding of why he has behaved the way he has.
Catherine in the Criminal Justice team and Gemma the speech therapist have been brilliant.
