Changes Professional Endorsements

A selection of endorsements from health professionals...

"Changes is preventative and works through things with people. Not just offering people a chat and all the rest of it. As much as people say they don't like everything to be fixed and in little boxes, we still do like steps so you can say 'I've reached this now lets go to another step.' I think that's important, I think to be structured like that gives people a lot more help."

Social worker and manager at a Social Services multi purpose day centre.

"I've seen people who've got involved in Changes move from isolation, depression and poor self-image, into very active, articulate and dare I say successful people in a short space of time."

Neville Branch Development Worker, North Staffs User Group.

"I believe that the work you are doing is of great importance and adds to a range of 'Wellness Tools' available to people who experience mental distress.  I would therefore very much like to work closely with you to help to take your work forward as part of the overall development of mental health recovery and recovery oriented services across the country."

Piers Allott, Fellow for Recovery, National Institute of Mental Health for England

"From my impression and from meeting the people who work at CHANGES is that CHANGES has changed. It has become more structured but not in a bad way, there is a focus point there because you've got paid staff and can see it growing and developing. It's obviously moved a long way and yes I find it does a lot of people a lot of good."

Counsellor at North Staffs MIND.

"It is interesting to know that the GP's role would be to let people know that CHANGES exists and that there is being valuable work being undertaken to tackle depression and other related mental illness. Part of a recent health service initiative is to ask GP's to refer clients with mental health issues to relevant non-statutory organisations, CHANGES sounds like a very good organisation, and will fit in well "

GP at Moorecroft medical centre.

"My experience over the past 3 years has been of an organisation that genuinely seeks to promote the recovery of service users, and also genuinely seeks to support professional staff in their endeavours. This has been a most successful partnership, it has made me feel good to see this organisation blossom and to work so closely with our own service."

Dave Pearson, Director of Clinical Governance & Nursing, Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

Psychiatrist Dr Mike Jorsh

"Changes is the recovery model in action"

Liz Wrigley, Clinical Psychologist
