Mind & The Cellar Trust – feedback about our winter pressures programme

Did you know we work in partnership with Mind in Bradford to deliver mental health support across the region? Our joint winter pressures programme has been focused on supporting people who struggle with their mental health to find alternatives to A&E.

We’ve had some fantastic feedback about Allia, who has been working in the community with the Intensive Home Treatment Team and Community Mental Health Teams, that we wanted to share with you:

“Allia has been like a best friend to me but on a professional level, throughout my time with IHTT, CAB and other appointments and time outs at Sanctuary she has been so patient with me and supportive and made me feel empowered and confident to speak and very consistent and good and keeping on track with appointments and positive. I feel very at ease speaking and being in her company.”

“Allia was very supportive in informing me of the service available at Mind. She put my mind at rest and helped me by making me feel very welcome.”

“I was in a dark place felt I had no one to turn to. Allia felt like a sister – she’s able to connect and makes it so easy for me to be open. She’s indescribably perfect at the job she’s been placed in. Bearing in mind I’ve only met her a hand full of times, she honestly doesn’t know that she’s a one in a million and her realness shines genuine, honest, just pure and down to earth. She’s seen me on my bad days. But still she was herself. Human scaffolding is people who surround you when you’re weak and unwell, and Allia was right there at the top catching me before I fell.”
