At The Cellar Project’s recent Mental Wealth Awards held at The Midland Hotel, Bradford Peter Scotcher, an occupational therapist from Meridian House was named ‘Professional Of The Year’.
The award recognises a mental health worker who has gone the extra mile to promote recovery and employment for people with mental health problems.
Peter won the award on the back of his work encouraging people to overcome barriers and try new activities to get into employment. He was nominated by Jane Foers, Case Manager at The Cellar Project.
Peter said afterwards:
“I was surprised to win the award, but feel really proud. It’s not often that someone goes out of their way to nominate you for an award, I’m really grateful”
