Royaume-Uni : You need an open mind and creative approach to work in mental health

le 18 juin 2015

[The Guardian] Seeing patients achieve something they’ve wanted for years makes it worth going the extra mile 

I get up when the cat insists I do – 7am usually – before walking 30 minutes to work in order to get some exercise and mull over which patients I have in today.

My morning starts with a meeting at 9.30am for our team of instructors and occupational therapists to discuss any concerns with patient health, goals, engagement or wider support. I am an office skills technical instructor, working in adult mental health, helping patients, who I refer to as students, in the early stages of recovery move towards college, employment, volunteering or other community-based activities.
