Meet the Mental Health Team

Sharon

 

"I've been with the team for 16 years and I work with both carers and cared-for. I'm lucky enough to spend most of my time (when not in lockdown) in cafes, garden centres, shops, museums and the swimming baths doing a variety of things with my cared-for clients, getting them out and about in our area."
   

Pete

 

"Hi my name is Pete and I have worked for Carers Count for 18 months. Before that I was a volunteer with them. I really like my job and I hope I make a difference to my clients with the support I give them. I also have some great work colleagues."

   

Sandra

 

"I work with carers and their loved ones and I have done this for the past 7 years. I really enjoy my work and have helped so many families though very hard times."
   

Becki

 

"Hello, my name is Becki and I have worked with the team for nearly 4 years. I really enjoy my job role providing support to carers and cared-for in a range of different ways, which includes 1-1 support sessions, groups or signposting to other services for extra support/help if needed. I enjoy meeting people and have helped a lot of carers and cared-for through some difficult times and find my job very rewarding."
   

Rachel

 

"Hello my name is Rachel and I have worked in this team for over 18 years but had experience of working in mental health and learning disabilities services for over 20 years. I am proud to have helped so many carers, clients and families through difficult times, it is such a rewarding job. I have met some lovely people on the way and hope to meet many more."
   

Helen

 

"Hi, my name is Helen and I have worked with the team since January. Prior to this I worked supporting people with learning disabilities and complex needs for 15 years. At the moment I support cared-for clients by taking them out in the the community to do things they enjoy and to give their carer a break. I am really enjoying what I do and I'm looking forward to getting back out and about once lockdown is over."

   

Sarah

 

"Hi, I'm Sarah and I joined the team in January 2021. Before starting work at Carers Count I was running my own community-focused Tea Room providing drop-in groups for socially isolated people in my local area. Prior to that I worked as a volunteer counsellor for a charity in Bradford. My role at Carers Count is to provide 1:1 emotional support for carers, and provide carer breaks by taking the cared-for person out into the community. I love listening to people and supporting them as their confidence grows."

   

Robin

 

"I have worked in mental health services for 19 years, the last four years as a manager. I aim to support the team to provide the best service for carers and cared-for, and for the whole team to continue to make this a high quality and valued service."
