Employment Support – Mental Health

We are an employment support service supporting people with mental health needs who are:

  • already in employment but finding it difficult to continue in their job
  • unemployed and finding it difficult to get back into work.

Employment is an integral part of life for most of us, but unfortunately, many people experience some form of health issues in their lives at some point, that can have an impact on their work.

We provide an impartial, supportive and confidential approach to finding solutions that help find the right job for you. We want to prevent people suffering with issues such as stress and anxiety from leaving their existing jobs, when they are both able and motivated to work.

It’s an invaluable service which can make the difference between someone staying in employment or not. The experience I have had of using the service is that it is run by people who genuinely care and are motivated to make a difference in people’s lives
