Service user feedback – Social Isolation Service

This week we were delighted to receive this feedback, from someone who is supported by our Social Isolation Service:

“Stockport Mind is an absolutely vital charity, undertaking challenging, life changing work within our community. I have personally received outstanding professional support from the dedicated team.

I specifically need to applaud the incredible, consistent psychological support provided via the Isolation Service. My worker telephoned me on a regular basis throughout the solitary months of self-isolation due to the Covid 19 lockdown.

Her superb understanding and knowledge of mental health problems enabled me to survive these traumatic times. Stockport Mind has provided myself and many others with life saving support, and continue to do so.

Many people who endure mental health issues do not have supportive families or friends, so Stockport Mind is an integral part of our lives. I am also aware that Stockport Mind is in desperate need of funding to enable them to help more emotionally distressed and isolated residents within our borough.

Their work saves lives, and enriches the lives of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. I truly hope that Stockport Mind receive adequate funding and recognition for this essential service.

The staff team care passionately about mental health wellbeing, and alleviating psychological distress. The staff members are proactive, responsive, and engaged with those of us who desperately need this community-based support. Thank you Stockport Mind!!!”
