Day 21: It’s more than just a job!

Today, I joined a ‘virtual’ visit to Turning Point Connect, a new community-based service in Nottingham offering innovative and proactive support to people with complex needs around trauma, managing crisis situations and those with a Personality Disorder.

 What was particularly striking about this service is how Peer Support Workers, with lived experience of Mental Health crisis themselves, are fully integrated as equal members of the team.  They work alongside psychologists to deliver the programme to great success.  It was brilliant to hear the pride and humility with which they spoke about their vocation (it’s more than a job to them!).
