I’m Lesley, the mental health worker at Providence Row. I work with homeless clients who have mental health problems or suspected mental health problems, in order to link them into services where they can get the right treatment and care they need.
Providence Row are supporting Men's Health Week this year, which aims to tackle the stigma surrounding men's mental health, and to encourage men to better understand their well-being and ask for help before it's too late.
Lesley is our mental health worker at Providence Row. She works with homeless people who suffer from a wide range of mental health issues, anything from chronic depression to schizophrenia. Sometimes they don’t realise quite how unwell they are and refuse to accept help.
We are a homeless charity tackling the root causes of homelessness to help people get off, and stay off, the streets. Last year more than 1,400 people used our services. Working with people to build skills and confidence is the key to success.
