We know it’s taken a lot of courage to come this far. You’ve already started your healing journey, and we are committed to doing what we can to support you in a way that works for you.
After your assessment you may feel overwhelmed by different emotions - please be reassured that this is very normal. Please make sure you take care of yourself in the coming days especially; try not to plan anything new or stressful immediately after you’ve seen us and take some time out for you.
You’ve taken a huge step and are breaking the silence that has had a hold over you for so long.
As a team we will discuss your assessment and the feedback you’ve given us to work with you to find the best support for you, where you are at NOW. While you are waiting for allocation to a service or intervention we will phone you at timescales decided by you, we call these ‘Upholding calls’ where a support worker will call you and check in with how you are doing and update you on the progress of your allocation. You are in control of these calls and can request them more or less frequently depending on how you are feeling.
Please note that SiT operates a triage system on our waiting list, which means that people are allocated according to their needs rather than just being a number - so if you are doing ok at the moment you may wait a little longer than someone who is currently in crisis.
But we will keep you updated, that’s a promise.
We’re here Monday to Friday 9am-5pm if you need to call us.
Don’t struggle alone - we have a support worker on hand every day to support you, so call us on:
01473 232499 / 07765 052282
